In 1999, Mildred (1897-1996) and Bernard (1898-1997) Doyle established the Doyle Charitable Trust Scholarship. Since then, more than 25 scholarships have been awarded to Plymouth Harbor employees and their children.

A result of the deep admiration the Doyles developed for Plymouth Harbor employees during their residency, the trust was established as a means to provide ongoing educational assistance to “a worthy and needy child of an employee of Plymouth Harbor” or “a worthy and needy employee seeking to increase their skills or to obtain a higher education.” Each year, a scholarship committee at Northern Trust Bank, including former Plymouth Harbor executive director Jack Smith, selects two recipients for the $5,000 scholarships.
