John T. Rutledge Memorial Scholarship Award

An Exceptional Man With A Noble Cause

     John Rutledge, the Patriarch of the Rutledge family, believed in learning a trade, and THRIVING instead of merely surviving.  He led a fascinating life, involving his children in his acts of charity all over the world.  Mr. John Rutledge  taught plumbing to the people of Liberia in the late 1950's and was a strong moral example to his children and colleagues.  His strong work ethic and desire to teach skilled career paths to the underprivileged spurned a desire within Dr. William Rutledge to not only open a college, but to create a scholarship fund in his late father's name.


     We are a small, non-profit college with a fierce desire to give back to our community.  Our goal is to provide education and career opportunities to those who may not have the means for school tuition.  This is where you can help!


     You can make a difference now in helping your community by donating to our foundation.  One nickel a month could even help someone less fortunate enroll to become a qualified, CERTIFIED allied healthcare technician.  Sometimes a very small donation to a worthy charity makes a big impact on someone who may lack the extra twenty dollars needed for their education.


     We are a dedicated team of volunteers and workers who believe in the great Dr. William Rutledge and his family's vision.  We ask for your help to see it to fruition.  You can click the "donate" button below or send a check to:
