The Ralph Watson-West Chester Exchange Club Scholarship 2022
By 1st Class Michael McCarthy
August 8, 2022

At the August monthly meeting of the Fame Fire Company, Live-In Fireman William Romano was the recipient of an award from the Ralph Watson - West Chester Exchange Club Scholarship. Romano was presented with a check in the amount of $1,000 made payable to West Chester University where Romano is entering his senior year as a Criminal Justice major.

The scholarship fund was developed to assist Fame’s live in members to help offset their educational costs. Fame’s Live In program helps provide round the clock staffing of our fully volunteer fire company. The program provides a significantly reduced response time to emergencies within our community.

The scholarship was named after former Fame Life Member and President Ralph Watson who also served the community as a Fire Chief, longtime member of the West Chester Exchange Club and local businessman. The West Chester Exchange Club was generous with the initial funding the scholarship.

Presenting the award to Romano is Fame Fire Company President Mike McCarthy.
