Patrick E. Ringwald Scholarship
The Patrick E. Ringwald Scholarship is given annually to a College of Charleston student with a major, minor, or concentration in Hospitality and Tourism Management. The scholarship is in memory of the former general manager of the Boathouse Restaurant who was shot and killed during a robbery some years ago. Patrick was widely known in Charleston’s food and beverage industry for over 20 years. Academic excellence, although important, is not the chief criteria for this scholarship. Instead, the scholarship is awarded to the student that best represents Patrick Ringwald’s spirit and attitude.
