Roland Hege Memorial Scholarship Fund
Roland Hege (1948 – 2014)
The Roland Hege Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to assist club members in the development of their skills by attending professional classes and workshops.
Roland was one of the early members of the SPW and had a passion for teaching others. He was a master machinist and taught in the Engineering School at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte. As an extremely talented turner, he loved to share his vast expertise and skills with those he met. Roland was a very active member of SPW and served on the Board of Directors. He was also an active member of the Charlotte and Waxhaw Woodturner clubs.
The Roland Hege Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established in his honor and is funded by the sale of wood turnings donated by our members as well as cash donations.
