The Endowment:

As of June 30, 2014, the endowment balance was $60,838.  

Gifts from alumni; family and friends of Marlowe Sherwood; class gifts from the reunion classes of 1955, 1957 and 1958; proceeds from Alumni Association fundraisers such as the replacement diplomas and t-shirt sales; and activities during Alumni Weekend, continue to make this fund grow. As the balance increases, the earnings from the fund also grows, allowing more awards to be given to our alumni students and their family members.
