What was formerly known as the Richard Torongo Memorial Athletic Scholarship was recently renamed the Richard and Margaret Torongo Memorial Scholarship. This endowed fund of the Roscommon County Community Foundation provides assistance in sending kids from Roscommon Middle School, grades 5th-8th, to athletic or fine arts summer camps.
Richard “Dick” Torongo fulfilled his life’s ambition of raising his children “up north” and coaching. He coached football and basketball and initiated the elementary track and field and basketball program in Roscommon.
Margaret “Marge” Torongo attended the Detroit Art Institute, then moved to Roscommon with her husband in 1969. She was a cofounder of Roscommon’s Art in the Park, and a volunteer for many organizations. Mrs. Torongo was the most “complete” when she was surrounded by family.
