Fairport-Perinton Dollars for Scholars Names Tom Loughlin as 2022 Donna Yawman Honor Award Recipient


Each year the Fairport-Perinton Dollars for Scholars (DFS) board of directors presents the Donna Yawman Honor Award to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the organization. This year the board is proud to award longtime board member, Tom Loughlin.


Tom was a dedicated member of the DFS board, and joined just after its inception in 1990, until he stepped away from his position in 2020. During that time, he was instrumental in the development of Scores for Scholars, a Fairport basketball fundraiser, and Fairport Sports Clinics, a winter fundraising event to promote youth sports. Both longstanding programs were a great success, and collectively raised over $50,000 for DFS. In addition to his fundraising efforts, Tom generously volunteered his time at DFS events throughout his tenure as a board member, and was known to lend a helping hand whenever possible.


Tom, a former coach and baseball board member, has a love of sports and a strong connection to DFS and the Fairport community. He continues to raise funds for Scores for Scholars, and when he's not spending time with his family, can often be found supervising Fairport basketball, football, and lacrosse games. Tom's sense of humor and positive energy are infectious, and his efforts as a board member made a great impact on many young lives in the Fairport community.
