SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The COVID-19 pandemic has upended lives and postponed dreams. Students pursuing higher education have been acutely affected by the closing of universities and severe restrictions upon their on-campus experiences. The skyrockeing costs of tuition and books, retooling for virtual education and the loss of international student constituencies present challenges that many universities will not be able to overcome. Help is needed!
The Sky Alland Scholarship Fund, under the guidance of the University of Virginia Alumni Association awards a full scholarship to fourth-year students that demonstrate those qualities espoused by entrepreneur Sky Alland during his lifetime; leadership, achievement, enterprising spirit, humility and devotion to the university. In hopes of furthering the Fund's laudable goals, Surety One, Inc. has delivered a corporate donation to the administration. In honor of his father and grandfather, both graduates of the University of Virginia the donation was matched by Constantin Poindexter, the firm's chief executive officer.
Says Poindexter, "My grandfather was the first person from his home county in southwestern Virginia to graduate from UVA. My father is a UVA graduate as is my sister. I have been blessed with some entrepreneurial success, largely based on my practice of those qualities espouse by the Alland Team and fortunate that I am in a position to be able to contribute to the hopes and dreams of budding entrepreneurs."
