(Shepherd Foundation announces endowment for students in Washington Gateway Program)

Shepherdstown, WV--The Shepherd University Foundation has announced the creation of an endowment funded by Shepherd University's Washington Gateway Program. Funds will be used to provide financial assistance to Shepherd students who once took part in the Junior High Washington Gateway Academy.

Serving as a gateway for students and community members alike, Shepherd University recognizes and accepts the opportunity to take advantage of its close proximity to Washington, D.C. Since 1991, Shepherd's Washington Gateway Program has been providing academic, cultural, and career experiences both on campus and in the political and information capital of our nation. An essential component of the program, the Junior High Washington Gateway Academy is a one-week residential, pre-college summer program that brings promising West Virginia students entering the eighth grade to campus in order to think about, plan, and prepare for college. The Washington Gateway Program Endowed Scholarship Fund continues the commitment of the Junior High Washington Gateway Academy led by John Adams, Ph.D., assistant vice president for student affairs, and Carol Boyd, program assistant for the career development center.

For more information about this endowment or about creating an endowment fund, contact Monica Lingenfelter with the Shepherd University Foundation, P.O. Box 5000, Shepherdstown, WV 25443, 304-876-5397.
