Since 1979, and for the past 44 years, Bob Eldridge has been an integral member and active supporter of TSF.
Joining the organization when it was known as the Citizens' Scholarship Foundation, he served as President from 1993 to 1994. He has filled the role of leader and contributor to multiple committees and events throughout the years.
In 2001, Bob was the driving force behind the creation of the Wakefield Adult Mentoring (WAM) program and helped transition WAM into the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization in 2015.
Bob is a fund sponsor of the Wakefield High School Class of 1958 Fund and he and his wife Merry established the Robert B. & Merilyn E. Eldridge Fund in 2013. In 2019, the WAM Fund was renamed the Robert B. Eldridge Wakefield Adult Mentoring (WAM) Fund.
Bob has been a steadfast presence and pillar of TSF. His positive "can do" attitude has contributed in countless ways to TSF's efforts for more than four decades.
