JT Scholar this year is Riley Whitehead

Riley Whitehead, 18, the son of Michael and Ellen Whitehead of Rumford, has been awarded the James Tanner Scholarship from the Rhode Island Golf Association’s John P. Burke Scholarship Fund. Riley is a 2021 graduate of Saint Raphael Academy, and is starting his freshman year at The University of Rhode Island in the College of Business this September. Riley has worked as a greenkeeper at Pawtucket Country Club for the past four seasons. He played varsity lacrosse for Saints and enjoys golf, basketball and football in his spare time. Having known Pawtucket’s beloved Caddie Master for as long as he can remember, Riley feels especially honored to be selected as this year’s recipient of the scholarship endowed in JT’s name.
