2018 Recipients of the Rebeckha Lynn Whitefield Scholarship

Tragically, we lost Becky 10 years ago this year.  For this year only, in recognition of this sad anniversary and to show Becky that her memory continues to shine bright, the foundation added five additional scholarships.  This year the RLW Foundation was proud to award fifteen Attleboro High School seniors scholarships valued at $777 each.

The $777 value is in recognition of her #7 field hockey number and her birthday February 21st.

We would like to thank everyone that applied for the RLW Scholarships this year from Attleboro High School.  The RLW Foundation received a record number of applicants this year, which made the selection process very difficult. This years recipients are...

Foundation donates hockey lockers for AHS hockey team

Attleboro High School hockey players were excited when New England Sports Village opened its ice rink facility more than a year ago, giving them a place to play in their hometown.  And they were excited to have a locker room of their very own in that building.

But the room didn’t come with lockers, which made for a helter-skelter mess.  That’s now changed, thanks to The Rebeckha Lynn Whitefield Foundation and two AHS hockey boosters with carpentry skills.

The foundation donated $2,500 for materials to build 20 lockers for the players and coaches of the team that last weekend won the Fairleigh Dickinson Tournament on Martha’s Vineyard and has also qualified for the state tournament.

Bill McDonough and Mark Arruda donated their time and skills to build the lockers.  McDonough, whose son plays on the team, is the city’s building commissioner and Arruda is his assistant.

He said it took about 10 days to complete the lockers working at night and on weekends.

“It gives the kids a real sense of pride,” McDonough said.

Each of the lockers has a name plate, hangers for skates and clothes and a compartment below to store personal items.

Missy McKenzie, president of Friends of Attleboro Hockey, which raises money to fill in budget gaps the city can’t afford, said the lockers mean a lot.  “This is huge for the hockey team,” she said. “The kids now have a place to call home. It’s beautiful.”

The foundation — a charity dedicated to the memory of Rebeckha Lynn Whitefield, a 17-year-old AHS student who was killed in a crash in 2008 — has donated more than $400,000 to support families, education, sports and community programs throughout the region.

The AHS Cheerleaders thank the RLW Foundation for their support every year....

A HUGE Thank you to Mike Whitefield & The Rebeckha Lynn Whitefield Foundation for your very generous donation to the AHS Cheer Booster Club. We cannot thank you enough for your support!!!
