Supporter Stories

Jim and Dorothy Newland


Jim and Dorothy have been JRF supporters for more than 20 years. Jim started out by reading scholarship applications, then moved on to join the Board of Directors as Treasurer, and eventually became the first male president of the board. He and his wife Dorothy have seen JRF blossom into “a sophisticated organization with a broader knowledge base and growing participation.” They fondly remember traveling to Sapelo Island, Georgia to review applications and enjoying an annual retreat with the rest of the Board Directors during their time of service to JRF. Jim rallies other JRF supporters with the encouraging words, “Keep on keepin’ on!”
