The Tidewater Community College Educational Foundation announced that an endowed scholarship has been established in the name of President Edna V. Baehre-Kolovani, who retired from the college on June 30.
The college-wide scholarship was funded through gifts from the TCC College Board, the boards of the Educational Foundation and Real Estate Foundation, and college leadership.
President Kolovani received the surprise announcement on June 28 at the annual Joint Board Reception, which honors outgoing board members and incoming chairs. She also was presented with a joint board resolution recognizing her six years of service to the college.
She has requested that the endowment go toward any need-based scholarship request “so that the fund can have the greatest impact on our students.”
