FREDERICK, Md.—A Frederick foundation that provides scholarship funds for students with financial need recently granted Hood College $20,800.
The Rev. Douglas P. Jones, senior pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church and Loats Foundation representative, visited President Andrea Chapdelaine and presented Hood College with a gift in support of the Loats Foundation Scholarship.
For nearly 40 years, the Loats Foundation has supported Hood College students who qualify based on specific criteria including financial need and pursuit of careers in public service, with preference given to orphans or those from broken homes. Since the inception of the fund in 1979, the Loats Foundation has provided more than $600,000 in gifts and afforded hundreds of students much-needed support in pursuit of their education at Hood College.
