The Pat & Bob Wollenberg Scholarship Fund for Special Education was established in 2018 by longtime Bristol residents Pat and Bob Wollenberg. The Wollenbergs’ interest in assisting students pursuing a career in special education are rooted in personal experience. An autistic family member and Pat’s involvement in education have carved a special place in their hearts for adults and children who are challenged intellectually, emotionally, or physically.
