You meet the BEST neighbors on the Alexandria City Scottish Walk! Really nice neighbors. Preceded by the Sea Cadet Corps, Henry E. Moobery Division, and followed by the illustrious Scottish Deerhounds, we were in great company! The Scholarship Fund of Alexandria's first year to participate in the Scottish walk was a resounding success, including board members Lois Berlin, Kevin Jahns, and Maria Mathews with good natured son Oliver, staff members Jasmine Milone, Michelle Gleeson, Albie Dickson, Sarah Zapolsky, and Cas Johnson, and last but not least "Titans 4 Scholarships" representative Lucy Savarie. We saw familiar faces in the crowds, and we imagined the applause was ALWAYS for our Titans, but those Deerhounds, they were a tough act ... to be tailed by....😏

Anticipation. Totally NOT staged. Winner Cathy Puskar just HAPPENED to be closely examining the winning ticket... (It really was a surprise!) at the Titans All-Alumni Happy Hour at Chadwicks on the Strand, October 19th presented by John Porter. Just 8 days later, this Titan from the Class of 1985 was awarded a huge accolade: 2022 Business Leader of the Year by the The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce during their annual Best in Business awards. Way to win—2 times in 8 days--both wins due to her very real enthusiasm and advocacy in Alexandria. And yessss, yay YOU, Cathy! Way to bring it home!

SEVEN Just SEVEN more days to give to 2023 graduating Titans during the CLASH💥 Every single 💸 raised goes directly into a scholarship launching a lucky AND hardworking senior Titan off to their post-secondary education. A tremendous cause with no risk involved. Each dollar counts as one less dollar a scholar has to pay back. Tremendous! The most enthusiastic class will have the scholarship named in their honor at homecoming November 4th! 1999 is in the lead…. Time's a ticking-—donate what you can with our thanks!

Even though we KNOW it's all about growing the Titans' scholarship possibilities, sometimes it's about the party favor too 😍🤍💙... emcee John Porter announced winner Jon Schildknecht, ’92 Titan--who moved with lightening speed to claim the coveted items and was THRILLED to say the least. Many tried and failed to take the padded chair and High School historical artifacts home. So sad and yet (!!) couldn't have gone to a more loving home. 😆 Scholarship Fund of Alexandria Executive Director Jasmine Milone made certain Jon knew his responsibilities as a Chair person.

If you want to give and missed the fun please donate today! Time's a-ticking! https://bit.ly/3BXq20a

We did this at least once a year pre-pandemic. Reconnecting tonight, together, no masks, no social distancing, and sharing stories like we used to…and supporting our alma mater - our one public high school - with the Scholarship Fund of Alexandria Tonight was good for the soul! 💙❤️
n an Oct. 17 email, Kevin Jahns, the chairman of the Scholarship Fund of Alexandria Board of Trustees, announced the departure of the Scholarship Fund’s (SFA) longtime executive director, Beth Lovain.

The Scholarship Fund of Alexandria (SFA) recently awarded $600,000 in college scholarships to graduates from the class of 2022. Soon, the nonprofit organization plans to match that amount when they award students already in college, contiuing a promise to offer support throughout their academic careers. Thus, $1.2 million dollars will be the largest amount ever given by the SFA.

“We are so very proud of the next generation of nurses, doctors, business leaders, computer scientists, recording artists, biologists, and professors ,” said SFA Board Chair Priscilla Goodwin, “who are heading off to college this fall thanks to the generosity of this community. Scholarships really do make dreams come true.”

The recipient of the Madelyn Anderson Memorial Scholarship, the largest offered, was Brianna Jerez. She will receive $40,000 over four years while she attends Virinia Commonwealth University. As the first member of her family to attend college, she plans to pursue a degree in criminal justice.

Late last month, the Scholarship Fund of Alexandrial (SFA) held its first in-person gala in three years. The event raised nearly $500,000 for scholarships, thanks to donations from the Alexandria community and its businesses.

During the gala, the board chair of the SFA, Priscilla Goodwin, announced that the nonprofit recently gave $600,000 in scholarships to 206 Alexandria City High School students who will graduate this next month. The SFA also plans to award an additional $600,000 to Titans already in college, supporting them as they complete their four-year degrees. That adds up to a commitment of $1.2 million.

Student speaker Brianna Jerez, the recipient of the Madelyn Anderson Scholarship (amounting to $40,000, the largest amount awarded to one individual) told the assembled crowd of local leaders, business owners, and high school alumni that she realized pivotal role higher education would have in helping to achieve her career goals. As a result of the schoalrship and financial aid, this member of the class of 2022 will graduate college debt free.

What a beautiful and inspiring evening over the weekend celebrating Alexandria City High School graduating seniors and raising money to support the Scholarship Fund of Alexandria!

Thank you to Congressman Don Beyer for inviting me and sponsoring our table of young Democrats. I was delighted to attend and had such a great time that Govan Faine and I forgot to take pictures together (lol!)

Congratulations to our Titans! Bravo to the SFA Gala committee! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👩🏽‍🎓
Oh, what a night! We were proud sponsors of the 36th Annual Scholarship Fund of Alexandria Gala. Great event for a great cause.
