The Rawson Fund was originally established by Professor Harve Rawson following the untimely passing of his beloved wife Joyce in 2008 in Cairo, Egypt, while on an around the world cruise. Joyce was Harve’s right hand during the earliest days of the establishment of Englishton Park Children’s Remediation and Training Center. Joyce was an elementary school teacher in Madison, Indiana. She also served on the Englishton Park Board of Directors for several years. After Harve’s passing in 2011, friends and family contributed to the newly named Harve and Joyce Rawson Fund in memory of Harve and his life’s work at Englishton Park. Investment proceeds from the Fund benefit the Englishton Park Children’s Remediation and Training Center each year.
