Generous Bequests and Donations Establish SJCAA Scholarship!
Generous bequests of two alumnae, when added to other donations and resources, have enabled SJCAA to make an initial contribution of $50,000 to begin the St. Joseph College Alumnae Scholarship at Mount St. Mary's University.
A $10,000 bequest to the SJC Alumnae Association came recently from the estate of Marie Slyker Schmidt '40. In her trust, Marie wrote "When I was most in need of guidance when I was very young, the Daughters of Charity, who had been a part of my life since infancy, were generous to me, providing me with an education, including a code of ethics which has guided my life."
Another bequest of $1000 was received from the estate of Mabel Edwards Fechteler '35. In addition to the matured CDs that the Association donated, the Baltimore Chapter of the Alumnae Association has contributed $2000, several classes have designated class gift funds for their future 50th Reunion class gift and individual alumnae have contributed.
We are immensely grateful for the support thus far to begin this endeavor. The $50,000 is now designated officially at Mount St. Mary's for our scholarship fund. Under the agreed upon terms, the first scholarship award will be in 2015 for the academic year beginning in the Fall of 2015.
