The Village of Richton Park Bill Fleming Scholarship, first awarded in 1998, was started to promote and encourage academic achievement among high school students by awarding an annual scholarship to a graduating senior residing in Richton Park. The scope of the award was later expanded to include adults desiring to continue their education. The scholarship was named in tribute to Bill Fleming, a resident of Richton Park, who was instrumental in sponsoring and promoting the President’s Golf Outing, the original source of funding for the scholarship. Several events, including the President’s Candlelight Bowl as well as donations from the residents, currently fund the scholarship.
The Village of Richton Park Bill Fleming Scholarship annually awards college scholarships to deserving residents of Richton Park. Awards are for one year only, but recipients may re-apply each year. All scholarship
awards will be paid directly to the educational institutions.
