PHLF Celebrates Scholars at Luncheon
During a luncheon celebration on June 20, David Brashear, Chair of the Landmarks Scholarship Committee, welcomed scholarship winners and their parents and former recipients who were able to attend. This year’s winners are Jaela Wesley (Schenley), Christopher Guyan (South Fayette), Lisa Stabryla (Carrick), Anthony Chmura (North Hills), and Shane Fischbach (Allderdice).
In his remarks David said, “Know that you come from one of the very best places in the world. Know that you have grown up in a place where respectfulness and manners matter, where friendliness is a way of life, where humility is considered to be a positive trait, and where you are considered to be not only a member of the community but a member of a family.
“Pittsburgh has given you much that will help you become successful. You’ve received great educations, and you’ve grown up in a city and region rich in cultural and recreational diversions.
“We couldn’t be happier to welcome you to our scholarship community. We hope that you will come back and see us every year for this luncheon and we hope you will develop a lasting relationship with our organization and with Louise and her staff.”
Since 1999, PHLF has awarded 45 scholarships ($4,000 each, for book and tuition expenses only) to graduating high school students who have excelled academically, are active in their communities, and care deeply about the Pittsburgh region.
PHLF will be accepting Landmark Scholarship applications again in April 2012.
