Evans Memorial Scholarship Fund was recently moved to the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan by the Board of Directors of the long-standing scholarship organization based in the Town of Mamakating. The Marine P.F.C. Jerry B. Evans Memorial Scholarship Foundation, Inc. was established in 1969 in memory of the late Jerry B. Evans who was killed during active duty in the Vietnam War.
