HCC receives two bequests



Hagerstown Community College recently received two bequests from individuals wishing to leave a legacy to the college.

Louise S. Sutter requested that a $120,800 gift, 5 percent of her estate, be used exclusively for the Mable Walter Arboretum. Not knowing Sutter, HCC officials believe the donation came as a result of her active membership in the Zonta Club of Washington County and her association with Mable Walter.

The bequest, the largest ever given to HCC, has been placed in the Arboretum Endowment Fund.

Helen R. Fisher also remembered HCC in her will. She was a member of the board of trustees from 1971 to 1985 and board chairman from 1977 to 1978. During the 1970s, she was responsible for furnishing and decorating the board room.

A $50,000 trust establishes the Helen R. Fisher Memorial Scholarship Fund. Interest earned will benefit two women enrolled full-time in the accounting, business, business administration or the financial services program at HCC. An amount of $55,666 is to be used for the maintenance and enlargement of Fisher Memorial Gardens in front of HCC's Kepler Theater.

"We are grateful for these magnanimous gifts. They are a tremendous boost to our scholarship program and the beautification of our campus and provide a wonderful legacy for these women," said Lieba Cohen, director of HCC's Institutional Advancement Office. "We are so fortunate to be the recipients of their generosity and lasting contributions."
