What prompted you/your organization to establish and/or support a Keystone College scholarship?
“Keystone was the right place at the right time for me because of two gifted and caring faculty members who patiently went the extra mile with an academic underachiever. It was also the right place because of a coach who knew when to say a kind word and when to poke me in the ribs. Keystone made a difference, a difference that has lasted a lifetime. The Keystone experience represents a defining moment in my life, as well as my wife, Mary Lu’s, who is also a Keystone graduate. Our support is driven by our gratitude.”
What would you tell others to inspire them to establish a scholarship?
“I think it’s generally a healthy experience to look in the rearview mirror and evaluate what institutions or individuals made a difference in your life, and give back.”
What advice would you give to current and future scholarship recipients in regard to their educational pursuits?
“Our Keystone College education went beyond the degree we received. In many ways it helped lay the foundation of what our lives would become. Take the opportunity to get involved in college activities outside of the classroom.”
