Maury Foundation Scholarships

Expanding Upon Tradition

Photo by Glen McClure

Gazing at Maury High School, George Consolvo marvels at how law colleagues in Richmond can’t believe “my connection to my high school” decades after graduation. But ties run deep for this Kaufman & Canoles lawyer, who counts at least 25 family members as alumni of Norfolk’s first public high school, which opened in 1911. George, a 1963 Maury graduate, is board secretary for The Maury Foundation, which is amplifying its scholarship program through a new partnership. In 2017 The Maury Foundation donated $500,000 to the Hampton Roads Community Foundation to establish two permanent Maury Foundation Scholarship funds. The scholarships will be awarded to new Maury Maury Foundation board officers (from left) graduates starting in 2018. For the Peggy Beale, George Consolvo, Jennifer Saunders first time, recipients can renew Pfitzner and Ryan King love their alma mater. scholarships for up to four years of college study. Funds come from hundreds of alumni who donated to The Maury Foundation over the decades. One of the Maury Foundation scholarships is named for the late Oscar Ferebee Jr. (class of 1936), whose wife Sandra memorialized him with a Maury Foundation endowment in 2014. Founded in 1986, The Maury Foundation is among the first charitable foundations in the country created to benefit a single public high school. Attorney Robert Nusbaum (class of 1941) of Williams Mullen led initial fundraising with the late Vincent Thomas (class of 1939), a former Norfolk mayor. The foundation “was a rarity, and we didn’t have any models to follow,” Bob recalls. Over the decades, The Maury Foundation has awarded $150,000 in one-year college scholarships to more than 115 Maury graduates. Partnering with the community foundation “makes sense,” says Maury Foundation board president Ryan King (class of 2004), Imagine what it’s like to send a Harvey Lindsay Commercial Real Estate brokerage THREE kids to college associate. “It’s impressive what we have done before, and at the same time! now we can do more than one-year scholarships.” See page 2 Board treasurer Jennifer Pfitzner Saunders (class of 1997), a partner in Saunders, Matthews & Pfitzner PLLC, says the board wanted to C O N T I N U E D P. 10 award multi-year scholarships

Dyer Triplets Win Morgan Scholarships Imagine sending three children to college at the same time. That’s the reality for the Dyer family of Virginia Beach with triplets Sam, Luke and Abby. Tuition, room and board total more than $90,000 a year. “It really is daunting when you think about paying for all three at the same time,” says Marnie Dyer, the triplets’ mother. Not being able to attend college was never a question for the triplets. “We always said ‘when you go to college,’” Marnie says. But she and her husband Patrick were open about the fact that paying for college would be a family hardship. They encouraged the triplets to do what they could to help. Sam, Luke and Abby took the request seriously. They got good grades at Floyd E. Kellam High School, worked as summer lifeguards and in a pottery shop, and applied for scholarships. Their hard work paid off when all three received scholarships from the Perry and Bunny Morgan Fund at the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. Their scholarships are renewable for four years of study. Marnie was surprised each of her children won a foundation scholarship. “I can’t tell you how helpful it is,” she says. The Dyer triplets are among 383 college students receiving more than $1.2 million this year from 70 different foundation scholarship funds. While the foundation has had twins receive scholarships in past years, this is the first time a complete set of triplets has done so. The scholarships take “a load off our parents for sure, and that’s what we always try to do,” says Sam, the oldest of the triplets. “We’re just so thankful that we were given this opportunity.” Luke, who is two minutes younger than Sam, and sister Abby agree. Sam, Luke and Abby are in their second year of college and are

excited about taking classes in their majors. Sam and Luke attend William & Mary where Sam majors in chemistry and Luke in computer science. Abby is a double major in studio art and historic preservation at the University of Mary Washington. “I’m really proud of them,” says Marnie. “I can’t wait to see what they become.”

Morgans Help 181 Scholarship Recipients ................................................................................

Perry Morgan was a Georgia sharecropper’s son, World War II veteran, former Virginian-Pilot publisher and local philanthropist who never forgot how the GI Bill helped him go to college. Before his death in 1999, he arranged for a charitable bequest to the community foundation that would help others in his name and his late wife Bunny’s. The Perry and Bunny Morgan Fund provides student scholarships, supports area human services nonprofits and benefits the arts. Since 2000, the Morgans’ generosity has provided $1 million in scholarships to help 181 area Morgan Scholars pay for college at 23 institutions. Most scholarships were renewed for four years of study. This year there are 42 Morgan Scholars, including the three Dyer triplets.

Help Us Shape the Future

Whatever the issue—economic vitality, early care and education or domestic violence—it is clear that Hampton Roads is better when we work together to find solutions. That’s not easy in a place with many municipal and social divisions, but the potential for progress makes the effort worth it. For years, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation has led the charge toward greater regional cooperation on a variety of issues.

Reinvent Hampton Roads, an outgrowth of our regional economic competitiveness initiative, is close to helping the region create new, higher-paying jobs. Two proposals—a drone base near Williamsburg and an area-wide municipal ultrahigh speed broadband system— recently won unanimous approval by members of the Hampton Road Planning District Commission. Those proposals will seek funding under the state’s Go Virginia initiative to encourage regional cooperation. In fact, Reinvent Hampton Roads is the sponsoring entity for our region’s Go Virginia Council.

Minus 9 to 5, also incubated at the community foundation, is building a framework for child and family success by focusing on early care and education from conception to kindergarten. The initiative coordinated with organizations and parents across the region and this fall graduates from our offices to a permanent home at Eastern Virginia Medical School.

Launch to Move Initiative to EVMS ........................................................................... In December, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation will transition Minus 9 to 5 to a new location. The initiative incubated at the community foundation will become part of the M. Foscue Brock Institute for Community and Global Health in partnership with the Department of Pediatrics at Eastern Virginia Medical School. Over the past 18 months, the community foundation brought together more than 100 stakeholders to shape Minus 9 to 5. Healthcare and education professionals as well as parents and community organizations are focused on building and improving the childcare system in South Hampton Roads to help families from the time a woman finds out she’s pregnant until the child enters kindergarten.

757-251-0144 was launched last year to ensure that domestic violence survivors find help when they need it. This Coordinated Crisis Response hotline is a collaboration of the Norfolk-based YWCA, the H.E.R. Shelter in Portsmouth, “It comes down to just three Samaritan House things: Discover what we need in Virginia Beach as a community. Decide how and the Genieve Shelter in Suffolk. the foundation can help, and The community then give folks the tools to do it.” foundation seeded the effort with a $45,000 grant from our Sue Cook Winfrey Memorial Fund.

Each initiative shares one premise: Strategic partnerships help our region meet pressing needs. So it is with our next foray into civic life. In April, long-time Virginian-Pilot editorial page editor Don Luzzatto joined the community foundation to help with public engagement. His brief is broad: Help this community solve its problems. In a regional League of Women Voters speech, Don described the process: “It comes down to just three things: Discover what we need as a community. Decide how the foundation can help, and then give folks the tools to do it. All of that serves that other word that starts with D: Democracy.” Don has talked to hundreds of folks. He’s visited organizations engaged in similar activity across the country and learned what works for them. And, he’s setting groundwork to help us identify needs in Hampton Roads. “Then we’ll decide where we — the foundation — can be helpful,” Don said. “If it’s something we can support, we’ll do so. If it’s something the community is already doing, we might do more.” Data and analysis will reveal gaps and opportunities and drive decisions that will help build a thriving community with opportunity for all. This effort is fundamental to the mission and future of your community foundation. More importantly, we hope to make life better in our region. If you’d like to help, email Don at dluzzatto@hamptonroadscf.org or me at ddicroce@hamptonroadscf.org or call us at (757) 622-7951. Stay tuned. This journey has just begun.

In the last year and a half, Minus 9 to 5 has aligned community partners and organizations around areas such as safe infant sleep, professional development opportunities for childcare providers and Preparing families from conception to kindergarten kidspriorityone.org – a regional online resource for parents and families. The move to EVMS “solidifies the idea that making sure children are healthy, thriving and ready to learn is not just up to one organization, but it’s a community effort,” says Linda Rice, vice president for grantmaking.

Love for Suffolk Inspires Levy Scholarships

joined our legacy society in 2007. He asked that the scholarship be named for both him and his late wife Alice, a receptionist at International Paper who passed away in 1998. His inspiration for planning a bequest was a letter of reference he wrote years earlier for someone applying for one of our scholarships. Stuart marveled at how a community foundation scholarship helped his friend prepare for a successful career as an orthodontist. He wanted to give similar opportunities to others from his hometown, so he worked with his attorney to create plans for a future bequest. Stuart grew up in Suffolk and graduated from Suffolk High School before becoming a partner with his dad in The Young Men’s Shop clothing store in downtown Suffolk. After it closed, he enjoyed a second career as a Certified Residential Real Estate appraiser in Suffolk and Western Tidewater. The new Alice Riddick Levy and Stuart Paul Levy Scholarship Fund is for Suffolk residents needing financial help to attend college. Stuart stated in his plans a wish to “make a real difference in the lives of scholarship recipients in attaining their educational goals.” We are honored to carry out Stuart’s wishes. Applications for the renewable Levy Scholarship will be available December 1. The first Levy Scholarships will be awarded next spring starting Alice and Stuart Levy an endless line of Suffolk will be remembered forever residents helped by Stuart’s through their scholarship fund. generosity.
