Celebrating the 2016 Innovation Fellow – Ray Two Hawks Watson
By Jessica David / April 14, 2016 /   Loading Disqus...

More than 100 people gathered here at the Foundation last night to honor Raymond Two Hawks Watson, the 2016 recipient of the Rhode Island Innovation Fellowship.

...

Watson will capitalize on Rhode Island’s cultural heritage, history and diversity to drive economic development and improve cultural equity and social cohesion through his Providence Cultural Equity Initiative.

Now in its fifth year, the Innovation Fellowship is intended to stimulate solutions by Rhode Islanders to Rhode Island challenges. Watson’s proposal was chosen from a pool of more than 200 applicants.

We thank all of you – finalists, previous recipients, members of the selection panel, our donors, and of course, Ray's family and friends – for joining us in celebrating and congratulating Ray. Most of all, we thank John and Letitia Carter for their vision and generosity in making the Fellowship possible.
