Jeffrey Skubick, a Westminster College junior history major, recently received the Mervin Feldman Memorial Scholarship.

This $500 scholarship, funded by The Pittsburgh Foundation, was applied to his tuition for the 2007-2008 academic year.

Skubick, a son of George Skubick of Verona, is a graduate of Penn Hills High School.

"We are grateful to the Mervin Feldman Memorial Scholarship Fund and The Pittsburgh Foundation for their support of bright, motivated students like Mr. Skubick, who represent the future of our region," said Gloria Cagigas, vice president for institutional advancement at Westminster.

The Pittsburgh Foundation is one of the oldest community foundations in the U.S., awarding more than $36.8 million in grants in 2006. The Foundation works to improve the quality of life in the region by evaluating and addressing community issues, promoting philanthropy, and connecting donors to the critical needs of the community.
