Mercyhurst to honor 10 winners of Brad Foulk scholarship program

Mercyhurst College will welcome recipients of the 2011 Bradley H. Foulk Memorial Scholarship Skills Challenge to a special reception in their honor on Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 5:30 p.m. in the Chapel Foyer of Old Main on the Mercyhurst Erie campus. Joining Mercyhurst in honoring the youth, ages 8 to 14, are the Bradley H. Foulk Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) and the Greater Erie Community Action Committee (GECAC).

Winners of $500 scholarships are Angellica Bryan, Aubrey Favors, Judith Paige Marie Jonstone, Kevin Moore Stewart and De’Ante Pittman. The $100 scholarship recipients include Cayden Armes, Angel Gorton, Alyssa Moyer, Derrick Reid, Jr. and Brandi Rodriguez.

Each awardee participated in the 2011 Bradley H. Foulk Memorial Scholarship Skills Challenge held last summer at the Lake Shore Country Club, where they received golf instruction from area golf professionals and the Mercyhurst College and Gannon University golf teams and participated in a skills challenge. All youth were then encouraged to complete the scholarship application process. The winners were chosen by a selection committee comprised of representatives from Mercyhurst, the CAC and GECAC.

Winners will be given scholarship money to apply to the educational needs of their choice, everything from uniforms to school supplies.

Among the special guests expected to attend the reception are Mercyhurst President Dr. Tom Gamble, GECAC Executive Director Ronald Steele, Erie County District Attorney Jack Daneri, Caroline Foulk, Clara Ward and Benny Ward.
