Named Alumni Family Scholarship Endowments

The Alumni Association is honored to administer two named scholarships as part of the Alumni Family Scholarship program. Both are named for Alumni Association employees who truly made a difference:  Cynthia Darr Carver and Molly Bass.

Cynthia Darr Carver Scholarship

The Cynthia Darr Garver Scholarship was created in 2017 to honor the retirement of Cindy Garver (Col ’80), long-time Managing Director of the Alumni Association Admission Liaison Program (now known as College Compass). The first Cynthia Darr Garver Scholar was named in 2018.

Molly was the heart and soul of the Scholarships and Endowment program at the Alumni Association for 27 years and was influential in creating the Alumni Family Scholarship.
