The We’re Behind You scholarship fund was created by two alumni of Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts (PHSCFA) in Baltimore, MD to benefit a graduating senior who has left a lasting impact on their school and community.
Co-founders Ashley Fassell (c/o 2003) and Ashley Reynolds (PHS c/o 2004) were friends in high school and reconnected years later upon discovering the both relocated to Washington, D.C. In 2017, the pair created the scholarship fund and raised over $2,000 for a deserving student. This year, the co-founders hope to double their donations.
“The scholarships I received from Patapsco were extremely helpful in making my college education affordable. I want to give that same opportunity to a deserving student who can use the additional financial support to pay for college.” Reynolds explains.
“We hope that the recipient of the scholarship recognizes the significance of social responsibility and the importance of assisting others in their community,” Fassell said. “Although not a requirement, we hope this award will inspire the recipient to give back to others in their community - ‘paying it forward’ in his or her own way.”
Help us make an impact.
We hope you will donate to the 2018 We’re Behind You scholarship fund to inspire a lifelong commitment to giving.
