July 2022 - Online Version of Foundation Focus eNewsletter

Dear Friends of the Foundation, 

Welcome to the July edition of the Foundation Focus! It is an exciting time at PHSC as we embark on the College’s 50th anniversary. We hope you will join us for the many exciting community celebrations, events, and activities to be held throughout the upcoming year highlighting the College's history. The 50th year of the College presents a unique opportunity to reflect on what has made PHSC so successful, and dream about what we can continue to do to make the next 50 years even better.

As we prepare to welcome students back for the fall term, we look forward to the many ways that the PHSC Foundation will serve them. Because of our generous donors, the Foundation was recently able to assist in the College's Win Big contest and provided $50,000 in scholarships to deserving students. On June 30, PHSC President Timothy L. Beard, Ph.D. began the live drawing event with a surprise announcement. Each of the 50 winning student names drawn would receive a total scholarship of $1,000 to apply to the Fall 2022 term! Initiatives like this one are only possible due to the support of our donors.

Thank you for continuing to transform the lives of our students! 

Lisa Richardson, Vice President of Advancement
