In August 2018, the Rochester community experienced a sudden loss with the passing of Stephen D. Rogoff. Known for his compassion, humanity, and great ability to connect with others, Stephen was a tremendous friend to Prevention 1st. He co-founded the organization’s first major fund raiser–a Golf Tournament held at Midvale Country Club in 2013—including recruiting a committee, approaching local businesses to donate prizes, and obtaining dozens of tee sponsors.
In honor and memory of the positive impact that Stephen Rogoff had on so many, his children — Scott, Brett and Robyn — along with their families and the Prevention 1st Board of Directors have established the Stephen and Arlayne Rogoff Scholarship Fund. Each year, $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to two recipients who best demonstrate Stephen’s empathetic and actionable character.
How to Apply
The scholarship application requires an essay outlining the candidate’s personal experience with a preventable injury or in-home danger and their plans to generate awareness or educate others on such risks. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
