Below are the two "Thank-you" notes which Dick Dezenzo, chairman of the Scholarship Committee, received from
our 2021 REF Scholarship Recipients:
Thank you so much for choosing me as the recipient of the Retired Educators of Fairfield
Scholarship. I’ve always wanted to be an Elementary School Teacher. This scholarship will help me reach that goal.

Dear Mr. Dezenzo,
Thank you so much for picking me for your scholarship. I am going to Sr. Michael’s College to study Psychology and hopefully become a school counselor like my mom.
I had a great 4
years at Ludlowe, playing JV Soccer and tennis my freshman year, then the next 3 years on varsity where I have made so many memories and friends. Ijust want to thank you again for ending my high school career with something else to celebrate.
