2016 was a milestone year for our Heritage Group Award Fund when it topped $100,000. Now, as of April 2018, we are at $114,908.

In seven short years the fund has grown by $47,317, or 70%. And we achieved that after $28,000 in awards to 33 RRC students since 2013 (an average of $5,600/year)! Not bad.
