Apply for the Bob Richins Scholarship Award Today!

In 2017, The Richins Family Scholarship was created as the result of many generous donations given to LVWC in memory of Bob Richins.  As a past Board Member and friend of LVWC, Bob’s early and ongoing support of LVWC reflected his enthusiasm for helping others in any way he could.  This award is given annually to assist an active LVWC student financially with the costs involved with pursuing his or her literacy goal.
