RCRTA Scholarship Report

The Rutherford County Retired Teacher Scholarship was first established in 1988 with a donation from Ernest Hooper. It was designated to go to a student who is preparing to teach. Over time, additional contributions from Dr. Hooper and other have allowed the fund to become an endowed fund with scholarships awards on an annual basis. The fund currently has an endowment of $30,000.

This scholarship has been ably led by Patrick and Delores Doyle for many years. Thanks to their leadership, the RCRTA Scholarship fund has assisted many excellent future teachers. Delores “Dee” Doyle continues this tradition of selecting highly qualified recipients for the RCRTA Education Scholarship.

Contributions to the scholarship fund may be made as serials in the name of deceased RCRTA members or in honor of living members by sending your check to the MTSU Foundation, Account Number 093172, Office of Development, MTSU, Murfreesboro, TN 37132.
