Ridgefield High School seniors who support people with disabilities invited to apply for SPHERE Leadership Award

SPHERE Leadership Award

Are you a Ridgefield High School (RHS) senior who has supported SPHERE or people with disabilities throughout your high school years? Consider applying for the SPHERE Leadership Award.

Newly unveiled, the SPHERE Leadership Award provides a one-time scholarship of $500.00 to an outstanding graduating Ridgefield High School senior who has demonstrated (a) a commitment of support toward people with disabilities and (b) strong leadership skills.  

"This new leadership award is in support of those who help people with disabilities - from children to adults.  Our hope is that this small amount of money inspires our youth to learn about this wonderful population and to give back," explains Lori Berisford, SPHERE Chairman of the Board.

The application form is now available through the RHS Counseling Center and the school’s Naviance app.  The application deadline is Monday, April 2, 2018.

SPHERE will announce our Class of 2018 SPHERE Leadership Award recipient at RHS Senior Award Night on the evening of Thursday, May 24th.

SPHERE helps adults with developmental disabilities achieve their dreams by providing them experiences and programs that directly improve their quality of life and connect them to our robust community.
