The Community Foundation of Frederick County announces The St. Nicholas Children’s Scholarship Fund. The fund becomes one of more than 700 funds under management.
Established by Dr. John George, the fund will provide post-secondary scholarships for graduates of Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS), with preference to minority students and secondary preference to students with financial need.
Dr. George, a career educator, was a teacher, administrator, and curriculum specialist with FCPS from 1968 to 2002. He was also an adjunct professor at Hood College for 17 years, and then full-time professor, including six years as department chair of education at Hood College from 2002 to 2016.
Dr. George’s commitment to education and devotion to students will continue as part of his legacy through this fund.
The Community Foundation works with individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to establish charitable funds that provide scholarships to students and grants to local nonprofits. Since 1986, more than $58 million has been invested in Frederick County. For additional information, visit www.FrederickCountyGives.org.
