Ruickoldt, D-2 — presents a $2,000 check on behalf of the West Haven Breast Cancer Awareness Program to Susan A. Ruickoldt Scholarship Fund recipient Gabriella Prisco on Tuesday, Aug. 1, at City Hall as Mayor Edward M. O’Brien, center, and Prisco’s parents, Ken and Gina Prisco, look on. In its 15th year, the scholarship fund was founded in memory of Ruickoldt, a city schoolteacher who died of breast cancer in 1997, and is awarded to a female high school senior from West Haven who plans to continue her education. Prisco, a 2017 graduate of West Haven High School, will attend Endicott College in Beverly, Mass., just north of Boston, in the fall. (City Photo/Michael P. Walsh)
