The Don Fairchild Scholarship Fund was established to support young adults, previously in residence with us and wishing to pursue post-secondary education. Don Fairchild was a teacher for the Juvenile Center from 1981-2001 and will always be remembered for his enthusiasm and commitment to teaching.
