Dr. Tori Haring-Smith, president of Washington & Jefferson College, accepts a grant check from Washington County Community Foundation trustees Thomas D. Gladden, chairman of the foundation’s allocations and programs committee, center, and Edward C. Morascyzk, board secretary. The foundation awarded $14,250 in grants and scholarships to the college in 2012. “Educational excellence is the hallmark of Washington & Jefferson College, and the support we received from the community foundation last year will give our students access to valuable learning opportunities at the Abernathy Baumplatz and help fund the symposium to celebrate the many contributions of Rebecca Harding Davis,” Haring-Smith said. The college also received a $5,000 unrestricted grant from the Acorn Fund, and three incoming students received scholarship awards from WCCF.
