The Richard Sales Memorial Scholarship has been established to honor the life of Chief Richard Lee Sales, father, firefighter and beloved community member. Chief Sales served the Reynolds Fire Department for 31 years, and succeeded his dad Bud as Chief in 2008. Richard was a remarkable man with a heart for service and a deep sense of community. He loved to help people and was willing to drop whatever he was doing to help his neighbors, friends and family. He will always be remembered for his wisdom, integrity, courage and good humor. Contributions may be made to CFWNC (note Sales Fund in the memo line) or donate online now.
