FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 5, 2019
Narragansett 2100, a non-profit organization of landlords with rental property in Narragansett and Narragansett property managers, has established a $500 scholarship for a URI student who resides in Narragansett.
“This scholarship is to honor the late Ray Kagels, founder and past president of Narragansett 2100. Ray loved the town of Narragansett and devoted much of his time volunteering in Narragansett. He worked hard in getting the various constituencies to work together to improve the quality of life in Narragansett. This annual scholarship will be awarded to a URI student residing in Narragansett who exhibits a strong level of community service.” Said George Nonis, president of Narragansett 2100.
After reviewing over 40 scholarship applications from URI students, the scholarship was awarded to URI senior, Brittany Lucas, a senior with a major in Supply Chain Management. In addition to her strong academic achievements, Brittany has an extensive list of volunteering. She is the president of the volunteer club at URI called S.A.V.E.S (Students Actively Volunteering and Engaging in Service). She has also volunteered in a number of other local events.
The scholarship award was presented to Brittany by George Nonis, president of Narragansett2100 and Nathan Robenhymer, member of the Narragansett2100 scholarship committee at Narragansett2100’s recent board of director’s meeting.
