Ray Kagels Scholarship Awarded to URI Student Anthony Bartolotta
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 is 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 60 scholarship applications from URI students, the Narragansett 2100 Scholarship Committee awarded the scholarship to Anthony Bartolotta, a URI senior with a major in Mechanical Engineering. In addition to his strong academic achievements, Anthony has an extensive list of volunteering. He has been the leading mentor of the Autism/Asperger Skills Group for 7 years. Anthony has also been a fundraising volunteer for the Ronald McDonald House for 8 years raising thousands of dollars in donations.
The scholarship award was presented to Anthony by Ray Kagel’s wife, Joyce, and George Nonis, president of Narragansett2100.
