Her youngest daughter graduated in 1985, just a few days prior to Mrs. Heenan's death. Since 1985, a $1,000 scholarship has been awarded annually to two students who have demonstrated exemplary achievement and an ongoing commitment to provide volunteer service to the school and/or community.

The Friends Scholarship is presented annually in memory of all Robinson students and graduates whose lives ended before they had the opportunity to realize their full potential. Two $1000 Friends Scholarship will be awarded based primarily on a student's involvement in activities at Robinson throughout grades 9-12.
