RMHC Scholars Program in Memory of Charles E. Winterhalter
Again this year, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern New England will award five 4-year Charles E. Winterhalter Memorial RMHC Scholarships valued at $20,000 each. Charlie was an avid sports fan, devoted family man, and charismatic leader with a contagious smile, McDonald’s Owner/Operator and Dartmouth High Alumni. Charles E. Winterhalter believed in working hard, supporting his South Coast community and beyond, and enjoying life to its fullest.
Under his leadership as President of RMHC of Eastern New England, thousands of local children were helped throughout the years when they needed it most. The RMHC Scholars Program in Memory of Charles E. Winterhalter celebrates his life and continues his legacy of strength, commitment, determination and helping others.
With education costs spiraling ever higher, a college education is beyond the financial reach of many outstanding students. The RMHC Scholars Program in memory of Charles E. Winterhalter opens the door to higher education for graduating high school seniors, from the following schools, who face limited access to educational and career opportunities.

The RMHC Scholars Program seeks to invest in students who are exemplary role models in their communities and have the initiative to fulfill their educational goals. The goal of the program is simple: to identify and invest in future leaders. Students are selected and awards are distributed based on demonstrated academic achievement, community involvement/leadership and financial need.
