Jaden Royal, a recent graduate of Ripley-Union-Lewis-Huntington High School, was chosen by the Ripley Alumni Association to receive the Self-Reliant Award donated by Ripley Federal Savings Bank.
The award was organized in the 1960′s by former principal Fielder Pitzer Jr. to honor Tom DeFossee, a 1967 Ripley High School graduate who lost his life serving our country in Viet Nam.
Jaden was a very active student while attending RULH and participated in many community and school activities. Ripley Federal is pleased to have Jaden chosen to receive this award and wishes her continued success.
Ripley Federal Savings Bank is proud to support not only our local school systems but also our surrounding communities.
