Fields, Dick & Katie Memorial Scholarship Fund (Scholarship)


The Dick & Katie Fields Memorial Scholarship Fund was established as a tribute to Barb Fleming’s parents.


 Barb fondly remembers her parents dedicating their free time to taking tickets at any South Adams (SA) high school sports event. Katie was a teacher’s aide in the SA math-science department for 30 years. Dick was at SA so often to help Katie that SA hired him as an employee in maintenance. Katie was also a Girl Scout leader and Sunday school teacher.


Richard was a member of the Cross Community Church. He retired from CTS Corp, Berne and engaged in farming. He was an avid South Adams athletic and I.U. sports fan.


Dick, a retired farmer, was so well known and loved that he was recognized with the South Adams Outstanding Fan Award. As the result of this award and their involvement, this scholarship will recognize SA students that have been involved in sports.
