The 2013 graduating class of New Richmond High School will head off to college with a hefty bank account.
“This year’s class received $2.7 million in college scholarships and grants,” said NRHS counselor Jim Reaker. “That includes three new local scholarships.”
The three new local scholarships are The Diana M. Spinnati Memorial Scholarship, the Leonard D Gibson Memorial Scholarship and the New Richmond HS Sports Medicine Foundation Scholarship.

“The Diana M. Spinnati Memorial Scholarship was established after her death in November 2012,” said Reaker. “It was established to help a New Richmond graduate who had overcome adversity and obstacles in life to further his or her education and realize their dreams.”
The Leonard D Gibson Memorial Scholarship was established in the wake of the former New Richmond educator’s death in June of 2012.
“Leonard worked for the New Richmond School system for the bulk of his time serving in the field of education, so it was a natural conclusion to endow a yearly scholarship for a New Richmond High School senior in his memory, particularly as in the role of high school guidance counselor he had personally helped countless students begin their journey toward pursuing their college dreams,” said Reaker.
Dr. Charlie Ware, a 2001 graduate of New Richmond High School, established The New Richmond HS Sports Medicine Foundation Scholarship.
“It was established to help a New Richmond High School graduate who was a varsity athlete to pursue a career in a medical related field,” said Reaker.
