This Fund was established by Mary Ann’s children and friends in honor and loving memory of a woman with an unforgettable personality, a spark for life and a generous heart. Mary Ann grew up in Dupont, a community she loved. She attended the local schools and completed one year of study at Marywood College. There was not money for her to continue her education. Due to this disappointment, she always had a soft spot for those who have to make similar decisions. This scholarship is awarded annually to a hard-working student residing in Dupont, Pittston Area who has plans to enroll in a two or four year college/university.
