ROI Foundation Announces Scholarship Winners

The ROI Foundation has awarded two scholarships to 2023 Fairview High School graduate Gunnar Cayko and 2023 Sidney High School graduate Logan Schumacker.

Cayko plans on attending North Dakota State College of Science for plumbing. Schumacker will be attending Missoula College in the fall pursuing an associate of science in business management.

In 1992, the seeds for a foundation were planted, and in 1993 the ROI Foundation, Inc. grew into a reality, with a separate board of directors now headed by Chip Gifford. The Foundation was formed to receive, accumulate, administer, and provide funds for the care and treatment of persons with intellectual disabilities in service at Richland Opportunities, Inc. (ROI).

The scholarship application says .......... "In this same spirit, it is the desire of the Foundation to provide a yearly scholarship in the amount of $750 to deserving Richland County graduating seniors. This scholarship can be renewed an additional three years. Grand total of the award could be $3,000. Applications focus on community service/involvement, and a demonstrated interest pursuing post-secondary enrichment."

The scholarship began in 1998 with Jenelle Stoner, currently Sidney's ROI Executive Director, being the first recipient. At least one scholarship has been given out every year since then.
