When Rob and Jill Swain decided to create a permanent Scholarship Fund at WCF this spring, they sought inspiration from their own educational experiences and those of their son, Connor (Jamestown H.S. ’16). Jill, with a degree in Chemical Engineering, and Rob with an MBA and a former basketball coach, share a love of basketball with Connor. What better way to give back to students in their community than through those activities that have made a difference in their lives.
The Swain Scholarship Fund will provide an annual scholarship to a W-JCC basketball player with high scholastic achievement and a second scholarship to a W-JCC senior who plans to pursue a degree in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, nuclear engineering or aeronautical engineering.
Permanent funds like the Swain Family Fund are prudently invested and managed to grow over time so that they will keep awarding scholarships and grants in perpetuity. For more information about establishing your family fund this fall, call 757-259-1660.
