The Peninsula College Foundation will honor Tim and Pat Morgan of Port Angeles on Friday, Jan. 18, with a formal induction ceremony that will mark their entry as members of the foundation’s Donor Wall.
The ceremony begins at 2 p.m. and will be held in the Maier Hall foyer.
Inductees are honored for donating $10,000 or more to the college. The wall is located by the entrance to the college, just past the college’s iconic arches.
The Morgans are being honored for establishing the Tim and Pat Morgan Match Fund in 2011 after Tim decided he needed to help local college students when he read about the increasing enrollments at Peninsula College during a time of significantly declining financial aid availability.
A sizable donation from the Haller Foundation, as well as funding from community members, allowed the Peninsula College Foundation to match the Morgan fund, and the Morgan Scholarships were born.
The scholarships provide up to $1,000 per quarter for tuition and $300 for books, renewable for up to eight quarters, for eligible students who have graduated from a Clallam County high school.
To date, the Morgan Scholarships have benefited 71 students, some being awarded more than once, for a total of nearly $100,000 in financial assistance to area students.
