Newport Circle of Scholars

 About The Newport Circle of Scholars

 The Newport Circle of Scholars is a non-profit volunteer organization that was created to provide life long learning programs for citizens 50 years of age and older. Its programs are focused on both scholarly and general interest subjects such as history, literature, science, international events, health, and the arts. Its programs and instructor recruitment efforts are facilitated and coordinated by a Curriculum Committee, and its external relations and policy are guided by a Board of Directors.  Membership to the Newport Circle of Scholars is included in your Edward King House membership at no extra charge.

The Circle currently operates with a combined Board/Curriculum Committee
made up of the following members:

Benjamin Riggs, President
Trudy Duval – Curriculum Committee Chair
Ron and Johanna Becker
Carmela Geer, Liaison to the Edward King House
