What prompted you/your organization to establish and/or support a Keystone College scholarship?
“The Bonnie Bennett Fiore Memorial Scholarship Fund was established at the death of my late wife in August 1980. Bonnie was very active at Keystone with the newspaper and other College activities. We attended all functions together, and we both loved the school and its mission.”
What would you tell others to inspire them to establish a scholarship?
“By establishing a scholarship fund, a special person is recognized and remembered. The Fund also enables future support to be directed to students with similar interests as the honored person, and the thank you letter from the student recipient is a personal ‘thank you.’”
What advice would you give to current and future scholarship recipients in regard to their educational pursuits?
“Pay it forward! When your financial position allows for donations, don’t forget your days at Keystone and how the scholarship you received, however small, helped you financially.”
Keystone College holds an annual Scholarship Luncheon each November, offering scholarship donors an opportunity to meet the students who benefit from their kindness.
