Story of Fund

Stock fund general education girl in cap and gown

This fund was established by Betty J. Quarles, who graduated from State College High School in 1936 and later attended Penn State, earning Bachelor degrees from Penn State and Simmons College in 1941. In 1961, Betty married her late husband, Giford G. Quarles. She was a member of the State College Presbyterian Church. Through a bequest in her will, Betty created this fund in memory of her father, Thomas G. Haugh. Her fund continues her commitment to our community and the pursuit of education that she enjoyed. The Thomas G. Haugh Memorial Scholarship Fund is to be used for a scholarship to a State College Area High School student pursuing a college degree.


How Does it Help?

The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.

The mission of the SCASD is to prepare students for lifelong success through excellence in education. The district draws its students from a 150 square mile attendance area encompassing the Borough of State College and the surrounding townships of College, Ferguson, Halfmoon, Harris, and Patton, totaling an enrollment of approximately 6,900.
