Women and Philanthropy Gives 10 Scholarships
For the sixth consecutive year, the Women and Philanthropy program at CSULB has awarded scholarships to re-entry students. This year, 10 returning students received financial support.
The recipients (and their majors) are Thu Hong T. Do (management information systems and accounting), Lam Kim Duong (management information systems) and Susan Olivieri (Spanish) of Garden Grove; Irma Hernandez (Spanish), Jennifer Murdoch (environmental science and policy), and Anita Porter (English with an emphasis in creative writing) of Long Beach; Peter Karaya of Costa Mesa (liberal studies); Thuy Le of Anaheim (accounting); Susan Renick of Redondo Beach (speech communications); and Hailey Tice of San Pedro (sociology).
“Re-entry students at CSULB know the value of education,” said Barbara Holden, program director. “They work diligently and successfully on their academic programs. The scholarship committee was pleased to award scholarships to these recipients who represent a variety of academic disciplines.”
Women and Philanthropy was formed in 1998 to give public recognition for the generous gifts of women throughout the history of CSULB. Made up of alumnae, faculty, staff and friends of the university, members make financial contributions to the university to support scholarships and volunteer their time on campus in areas corresponding to their individual interests.
Patricia Flores, who received her bachelor's degree from CSULB, is the current chair. To date, 45 scholarships totaling $52,000 have been awarded, providing assistance to returning students who would otherwise find it difficult to complete their education.
