June 14 Scholarship Reception Will Honor Eight New Winners

After reviewing 74 applications submitted by college-bound high school students from throughout Allegheny County, PHLF’s Landmarks Scholarship Committee selected eight winners: four students will receive scholarships in the amount of $6,000 each for book and tuition expenses only, and four students will receive Honorable Mention awards––a one-time gift of $250 each.

David Brashear, chair of the Landmarks Scholarship Committee, will present the awards during a reception on Tuesday evening, June 14, in the Hill District. Leroy Dillard, a member of the Scholarship Committee, and his wife Gwen, will host the reception at their home for invited guests, including award winners and their parents, former scholarship recipients, and recent donors. From their architecturally distinctive home that provides an incredible view of downtown Pittsburgh and the Allegheny River Valley, guests will enjoy barbecued ribs, chicken, and macaroni and cheese, while listening to live jazz. “This is just another example of the positive events happening here in the Hill,” said Leroy.

“Since 1999, PHLF has recognized 68 young people through its annual scholarship program,” said David. “Each person has achieved academic excellence and possesses the potential to make a difference in the Pittsburgh community and beyond. The students we select already feel connected to the city and its history and will hopefully continue to serve the region as leaders in promoting PHLF’s values.”

PHLF’s scholarship program is funded by generous contributions from the Brashear Family Named Fund and by donations to the Landmarks Scholarship Fund, including contributions to the 2008 and 2014 Scholarship Celebrations.
