Led by an estate donation of $29,326 by program alumnus Richard Heckel, who passed away last spring, the Scholarship Fund recorded just over $66,000 in donations during the past year. Leading Member Clubs was South Hills at $8715; nearly twenty individuals or organizations donated more than $500 each. Especially significant was $23650 raised in December, led by South Hills, a foundation donation of $2000, and several individual contributions of $500 each.

Overall Scholarship Fund assets now approach $750,000, and 2011-12 recipients are likely to receive in excess of $4000 each in tuition assistance.
