Shippensburg University gets $10 million grant By RICHARD F. BELISLE / Staff Writer, Waynesboro SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - A nearly $10 million gift from the state of Pennsylvania puts Shipppensburg University halfway to its goal of building a $20 million regional cultural and educational hub for the 130-year-old campus in Cumberland County.

Washington County is losing two outside funding sources - more than $1 million - by abandoning plans to build a senior citizens' center on the Hagerstown Community College campus. The Maryland Department of Aging had promised the county $800,000. Another $250,000 would have come from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation. Both grants were contingent on a senior center being built at HCC, County Administrator Gregory B. Murray said. At the start of 2012, after ruling out other sites, county officials were focused on placing a new senior center on the college campus.

It is disappointing that Washington County was not able to seal the deal on a modern new senior center that had been planned for a site on the Hagerstown Community College campus. State funding was delayed, bids disappointed the commissioners and before all was said and done, the county was looking for a backup plan. So instead, the county will settle for renovating some aging armory buildings on the city's northeast side. Last week, a divided Hagerstown City Council council voted to sell the property to the county for $625,000.
