  Delmarva Power Donates $10,000 Toward DSU Scholarships


In further demonstration of continued financial support to Delaware State University, Delmarva Power through the Delmarva Scholarship Golf Classic has presented the university with a gift of $10,000 toward the upcoming Dec. 10 Presidential Scholarship Ball that will be held on campus.

Presented on Nov. 19 to DSU President Harry L. Williams by John J. Allen, vice president of the Delmarva Power Bay Region, and Enid Wallace-Simms, its public affairs manager, the check represented its annual donation by the electric provider that will go toward DSU scholarships.
Delmarva Power has been a strong supporter of DSU since 1986; during that period the electric provider has donated just over $400,000 that has gone toward financial support for the School of Management (now the College of Business), the Wellness & Recreation Center, and scholarships.
Inclusive in that total donation figure is the electric provider’s 2002 establishment of the Delmarva Scholarship Classic Foundation which created the Delmarva Power Endowed Scholarship; the current market value of that endowment fund is just over $240,000.
