Ted Herget Way dedication

How do you recognize decades of invaluable service? At Stevenson University, we renamed the main road on our Owings Mills North campus from Gundry Lane to Ted Herget Way, in honor of Charles E. “Ted” Herget, Jr. On April 14, a ceremony was held in the new Academic Center to dedicate the road’s new name.

Herget served for 30 years on Stevenson’s Board of Trustees and is a former Board Chair. During that time, he was instrumental in the transformation of Villa Julie College into the University we know today. As a distinguished business and community leader, Herget introduced numerous individuals of prominence and influence to Stevenson, increasing our reputation and viability. He continues to serve as a member of the President’s Advisory Council.

Watch Herget get honored at the dedication ceremony:

Inspiration and appreciation were felt in abundance at Stevenson University’s 2nd Annual Scholarship Luncheon on April 17. This event brings together the alumni, individuals, corporations, and organizations that fund annual and endowed scholarships with the deserving students who benefit from their generosity. This opportunity to reach beyond the thank-you letters and photographs led to lively and earnest conversation in which benefactors and students gave inspiration to each other.

Board Member James T. Brady voiced the sentiments of many in attendance when he remarked that of the numerous events held at Stevenson, the Scholarship Luncheon is among his favorites due to the overall feeling of celebration and goodwill. Brady, along with his wife Fran, established the James T. and Francine G. Brady Scholarship, and they were delighted to have this chance to spend time with their student.

Another featured speaker, Beverly Bareham ’01, sponsor of the Beverly Bareham, CPA, PA Annual Scholarship, revealed that she keeps the photo of her scholarship recipient displayed in her office as a source of inspiration and reminder of the good that comes from giving back.

The event concluded with donors and students celebrating the experience by having their photos taken together.

Investing in Students, Building Careers

We cultivate many resources to grow the scholarship support vital to our students’ ability to pursue a Stevenson degree. Partnerships with area businesses are key to providing this support. Two such partnerships were recently established that provide not only scholarship funding but also valuable employment opportunities for our students.

Agora Invests in Digital Marketing Students

Agora, Inc., recently welcomed 19 students from the digital marketing program to their offices in mid-town Baltimore to learn about the publishing company and its new scholarship opportunity.

Following lunch and remarks from Brian York, Managing Director of Agora Integrated Marketing, students took part in informal interviews with Agora associates, toured two of Agora’s buildings in the Mount Vernon complex, and met with other Agora staff to learn about the transition from college to career.

Students also learned about Agora’s new scholarship, the Bill Bonner Scholarship for Rising Leaders in Digital Marketing. Named after Agora’s founder and president, this scholarship will benefit a freshman or sophomore who is pursuing a degree in digital marketing. The student receiving the scholarship will also participate in a summer internship at one of Agora’s companies.

Samuelson Foundation and LifeBridge Health Invest in Nursing Students

With the purpose of investing in students who show great promise for long and successful nursing careers, the Herman and Walter Samuelson Foundation has partnered with LifeBridge Health to offer scholarships of $12,000 to junior and senior students in Stevenson’s nursing program. As part of the competitive application process, candidates will participate in interviews with representatives from LifeBridge Health. The Herman and Walter Samuelson Foundation Scholarship for Nursing also provides a two-year employment commitment at Sinai Hospital or Northwest Hospital.

Challenge Accepted

In the four months since STANDforStevenson was launched, an incredible energy has been building around supporting Stevenson students. With the help of a growing group of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers, our students are benefiting from the generosity of our alumni, parents, and friends.

A particularly positive response was felt during our first Bunting Challenge Week in March. Volunteers and friends took to email, social media, and their phones to encourage fellow alumni to support the University, at any level possible, to help us add 50 alumni donors. We exceeded the goal with 53 donors and unlocked part of a challenge gift from Board Member Marc Bunting ’91 to support scholarships.

Our second Bunting Challenge Week at the end of April once again showed the University and our students both how much our alumni value their Stevenson experience and how much they want those who are following in their footsteps to value theirs. We again exceeded the goal with 71 donors, unlocking another $5,000 in scholarship funding from Bunting. Keep an eye out for our third and final challenge week of the fiscal year and help us unlock the final portion of Bunting’s gift.
