Fairmount College alumni give generously to help students take flight

Mark and Laurie Finucane

Mark, 1976, and Laurie, 1975, Finucane believe that traveling is crucial to a complete liberal arts education, and they recently established a scholarship to help students do exactly that. The Mark and Laurie Finucane Travel Seminar Scholarship helps fund students as they attend conferences and participate in abridged study-abroad programs throughout the semester.

“If you’re going to have a liberal arts education, a logical extension of that education is to experience other cultures and nations and parts of the world,” Mark said. “It teaches you something that you can’t read.”
