GREENVILLE, Pa.—Thiel College, a leading liberal arts college in northwest Pennsylvania, received $175,000 recently from The Community Foundation of Western Pennsylvania & Eastern Ohio. The funds will go to continue the support of the Emerson A. Baughman, Agnes F. Baughman and David E. Baughman Endowed Scholarship at Thiel.
Through the program, graduates from Greenville, Reynolds, Commodore Perry or Jamestown school districts can get full-tuition scholarships each year to attend Thiel College. Members of the Class of 2018 will be the first students graduating from the program.
“The scholarship plays an important role in my life because it allows me to attend college without the heavy financial burden. This scholarship has provided me the opportunity to pursue a double major, participate in clubs and activities, and volunteer in the community,” said Samantha McLaughlin ’18, a business administration and accounting major and a 2014 graduate of Jamestown High School. “I am grateful to have been chosen as one of the recipients of this gift because it pushed me to further my education at Thiel College in a community close to home.”
The scholarships are part of more than $100 million in aid that has been awarded at Thiel College since 2009.
