Roland Kelly

Roland Kelly Language Arts Teacher Grant


We all have many great memories of Roland’s dedication to the children of South Bend. As he would often say, we must walk the talk, and he always put his belief that all children can learn, into action. Roland served as secretary for the Foundation for ten years and on the marketing committee for two years. We will remember Roland every time we look at our logo, EDFO” as he helped to select the logo for the “upbeat” presentation. We remember Roland with the “Roland Kelly Language Arts Teacher Grant” for his interest in language, writing, journalism and media.


Since this endowment was established, 15 grants have been given in Roland Kelly's name totaling $12,967.87 benefitting 2,729 students.
