Orange Land Trust establishes Mr. Richard Wright Scholarship Fund

June 2022 - The Orange Land Trust is proud to announce that a scholarship has been established for $1000 to honor Mr. Richard Wright. Mr Wright was a lifelong resident of Orange. Around town he is remembered for his life guarding at Camp Cedarcrest and the town pool, for the many hikes that he led, his involvement with the history of Orange, and his concern for open space.


We are proud to continue Mr Wright's legacy with the establishment of this scholarship to be awarded to a Junior at the University of New Haven majoring in environmental studies.


The Orange Land Trust awards $1000 scholarships annually in the name of Dr. Edmund Tucker and Mr Fred Kendrick as well.
