Sidney and Dorae Archinal Memorial Scholarship Fund The Sidney and Dorae Archinal Memorial Scholarship Fund was created at The Pittsburgh Foundation to provide scholarships for students from the Woodland Hills School District area in PA who are pursuing secondary education. Sidney and Dorae made Braddock Hills their home in 1965 and lived there for over 30 years. During this time they raised 3 boys, participated in many community events and had many close friends from the Borough. They both retired from Braddock General Hospital and care giving was in their hearts. It is our honor to contribute a token of our appreciation in their memory to the current residents of Braddock Hills.
