It was the very noble heart of Smt. Krishna Biswas who was the true dreamer behind founding the Ram Mohan Mission High School. For her generosity and helping mind for the poor and helpless people specially of the backward districts of the State, she was popularly known as the ideal mother of the poor & downtrodden people. A scholarship in the name of Krishna Biswas is awarded to the most meritorious students of the school every year during the Annual Day. This scholarship virtually boosts up moral & learning spirit of the students.
