Beth and I have endowed a Hartwick scholarship in the name of my parents. I, like so many of our own students, was a first generation student. My parents did not have the opportunity to go to college, but they made sure that I did. The Campaign for Hartwick Students creates opportunities for everyone who benefitted from the generosity of others to give back. That is what I feel we are doing through our endowed scholarship fund at Hartwick. I often ask our alumni and many College friends, ‘Who helped you?’ Someone helped each one of us reach our goals and define our dreams. Now it’s our turn.
