2018 Annual Report for the Scholarship Committee of Third Haven Friends Meeting
Friends have a long history of promoting education of its members and indeed some of its schools date back to the late 17th century. The intention of this committee is to show the Meeting's support for its young members by encouraging their continued education, particularly in Friends' schools when possible.
The Meeting's support and the generosity of those who have contributed to this fund makes this possible for our current students and for those yet to come. We plan to continue increasing the amount of the grants in the coming terms.
|Our students this year are:||yearly||semester|
|Katie Claggett—senior—Guilford College||$1,200||$1,200|
|Nathan Mullen—junior—Wesleyan University||$600||$300|
|Laurence Claggett—junior—St. Mary's University||$600||$300|
|Emma Leibman—???—University of Maryland||$600||$300|
|Maya Claggett—freshman—Earlham College
TOTAL for Maya Claggett:
|Juliette Neil—junior—Yale University*
(*taking the Fall semester off, but plans to return in January)
TOTAL FOR YEAR:
We are proud of all of our students, but particularly pleased that both Katie Claggett and Maya Claggett are attending Quaker schools. Katie is completing her course in Quaker Studies at Guilford College, and her cousin, Maya Claggett, is just beginning a similar program at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. Both of these girls have been traveling around the world in the last year.
By next Fall Sophie Neil will probably be starting college. Coming along behind her are Max McCall, Serena Claggett, Maeve Mufson, Guiseppe Colbourn, Zadoc and Lucy Bond, Atticus Leibman, Molly McCall, and Liam, Finley, and Riley Ewing.
As of June 30, 2018 our funds at Friends' Fiduciary Corp. were $129,562.33 in the Endowment Fund, $10,060.60 in the Operating Fund, and $2,421.35 at Shore United Bank. Once this semester's grant checks clear, there should be $521.26.
In January we will probably be increasing the grants to $700 per term for Friends schools students and $350 for others.
We continue to hear from our students who express their appreciation of the Meeting's interest in their lives.
