The Bancroft Construction Company recently expressed its support for Delaware State University by donating $2,000 to go toward a scholarship for the 2011-2012 school year.
Bancroft’s Greg Sawka, president, and Stephen M. Mockbee, past president, presented the check to Dr. Alton Thompson, DSU provost and vice president of Academic Affairs, who accepted the financial gift on behalf of the University during a campus visit by the company's officials on Aug. 5.
The gift is the first installment of an annual scholarship donation that Bancroft has committed to over the next five years, which Mr. Sawka said is a reflection of Bancroft’s mission and commitment to the community.
This year's recipient of the Bancroft Scholarship is Devon Sivels, a DSU junior aviation major and honor student from Milford, Del.
