Rome College Foundation has awarded Casey Coon the Charles T. Beeching — Revere Copper Products, Inc. Family Scholarship for $2,000.

Revere’s Board of Directors established the scholarship in memory of Beeching, who was instrumental in the efforts that led to Revere becoming a locally-owned company. Candidates for the Beeching/Revere Award must be the son or daughter of an employee/owner of Revere Copper Products.

Coon, a student at Morrisville College, received the 18th annual award. He is the son of Dale Coon, a longtime Revere employee.

The Rome College Foundation, established in 1966, is located at the Rome Area Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber staff provides administrative support services to the foundation.

The foundation, through its annual efforts, helps hundreds of local students achieve their goals of higher education. More information on the foundation is available online at www.romecollegefoundation.com.
