At the January 2022 Company Meeting, three Live-In Program members of the Fame Fire Company were presented with scholarship checks in the amount of $750.00 each. The checks were made payable to West Chester University where each of the recipients attends. The funds assist the members with their tuition costs and were made possible through a joint effort of the West Chester Exchange Club and Fame Fire Company. The Ralph Watson Scholarship Fund is named in memory of the former Life Member of the Fame Fire Company who served as a fireman, fire officer, company president and Fire Chief of the West Chester Fire Department. Ralph Watson was also a longtime member of the West Chester Exchange Club, also serving as a club officer and a local businessman. Ralph was truly devoted to his family and community. The three recipients of the scholarship awards are William Romano, Max Quinn and Kyle Hodges.
