Edward H. Watkins Memorial Fund

Established 2002

Mr. Edward H. Watkins, Ashland, served as Director of Schuylkill Area Community Foundation from May 8, 1973 until his passing on March 27, 2001. For almost twenty-eight years, Mr. Watkins took an intense interest in the work of the Foundation, rarely missed a meeting and always actively participated in the tasks of any Committee of which he was a member.

A devoted husband and father, Mr. Watkins was memorialized by his family through the establishment of the Edward H. Watkins Memorial fund the earnings of which will be awarded annually to a graduating senior of North Schuylkill School District who has excelled in swimming throughout his or her high school career.

In addition to his dedication to his family and community, Mr. Watkins was an accomplished sports enthusiast garnering his own wealth of awards and achievements for outstanding athletic achievement.

This memorial fund is a lasting tribute to Mr. Watkins, a fitting legacy for his selfless contributions to coaching sports, providing oversight and expertise on community park development and his zest for life.

This fund provides an award to a member of the graduating class of North Schuylkill High School who has excelled in swimming.
