Henry Van Dyke (American History and Economics)
    I had a nice note from his daughter.  Mr. VanDyke retired to Florida with his wife, Norma, who taught English at RHS for 25 years after we all left school.......The Nugget of 1956 was dedicated to him - For always pushing so that our Nugget would get to the printers on time.......for working day and night to make our Class Night a huge success.....for offering us well-needed advice when we were down and out......for giving us pep talks when we deserved them.....for stories of the army and railroading, work for the Adult School, his variety of accents, the ability to admit defeat and live with success....and most of all for taking our side and sticking with us through this biggest year of growing up, we humbly and gratefully dedicate this Nugget to MR.HENRY VAN DYKE.

     A $1000 scholarship (The Henry and Norma VanDyke Award for Excellence in the Humanities) is given each year to a graduating Senior who excels in Social Studies and/or English.  Anyone wishing to contribute can send a check to RHS with the notation "VanDyke Award".
