Alum Dr. Irving Fradkin Visits NECO

Honor Alumnus Dr. Irving Fradkin will visit NECO on August 26th. After meeting with Drs. Scott and Fisch, he will visit with students in the LH-2 class at 2 p.m.

Dr. Fradkin, a Class of 1943 NECO graduate, developed a innovative way to help support higher education. He believed that if everyone in the community gave just a dollar to an educational fund, it would be enough to help nearly every student in the community to attend college.This became the basis for his Dollars for Scholars® program. His groundbreaking work eventually helped to create Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest non-profit, private sector scholarship and educational support organization. In the past 50 years, over 2 million students have been awarded $3 billion through Scholarship America®. NECO supports four scholarships in Dr. Fradkin’s name, each administered through Scholarship America®.
