Annual Ralph C. Canniff Memorial Awards
To honor the long term dedication of Ralph C. Canniff to the Touchdown Club of Arlington, the Club has created the Arlington Touchdown Club Ralph Canniff Scholarship. Ralph joined the Club in 1981, served as its President from 1992 to 1993 and continued serving it thereafter as its informal executive director. Ralf died on January 31, 2008. The Club and Ralph’s brother, Donald Canniff, sponsored a $1,000.00 scholarship which was won by Justin Connor on the recommendation of the Arlington High School Guidance Department at the annual High School Awards Night June 4, 2009. The Club is in the process of raising $10,000.00 to contribute to the Town of Arlington permanent scholarship fund in honor of Ralph.
