In 1988, Anne Hope Scott ’59 wrote to inform Mary Washington that she had included provisions in her estate plans to create a scholarship for chemistry students.
Chemistry was important to Anne. She first taught the subject in Atlanta, Georgia, and then began a 34-year career as a chemist and consumer safety officer with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. She passed away in 2022, leaving her bequest to fund the Anne Hope Scott ’59 Scholarship in Chemistry.
While her career kept her busy stateside, she took time to enjoy travel and adventure on almost every continent around the world. Wherever she went, she was proud of her degree from Mary Washington.
For more information about establishing scholarships now or in your estate, contact Jan Clarke at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-654-2064.
