Caryl Haring Memorial Scholarship Fund
Davenport, Iowa

Caryl HaringThe Caryl Haring Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Davenport Schools Foundation (DSF) in Davenport, Iowa was created by Cynthia Haring in May 2012, shortly after her mother, Caryl, passed away. Scholarship awards, totaling more than $10,000, have been given out 2013 - 2017. Cynthia comes from Florida to present the awards during the May Davenport School Board meeting every year. In 2017, seven students received a Caryl Haring Memorial Scholarship: Anna Arvanitis, Kayleigh Bolick, Brian Dennis, Cole Flack, Madison Harland, Brittany Hildebrandt and Nikolas LaMaack. Past recipients include Anna Black, Andrea Figg, and Jonathan Shaw (2016), Grace Schebler and Sydney Porter (2015), Hannah Herington and Olivia Terronez (2014), and Emily Doxsie, Makhala Swift and Samuel Flesburg (2013). These graduating seniors were chosen for their commitment to children and their desire to go into education and make a difference in the lives of children, just as Caryl did during her 40 years of teaching.
