The Women’s Club of Great Falls Scholarship Fund has formally announced the establishment of the Holly Ann Kuga Endowment at George Mason University.
Kuga was a long-standing member of the Women’s Club and a beloved friend and supporter of the Scholarship Fund who died in December 2020 as a result of a tragic car crash. The funds raised for Kuga’s endowment, which total just over $34,000, were a culmination of donations from friends and family in conjunction with the Scholarship Fund’s 2021 Spring Tea fund-raiser, held in her memory.
At a kickoff event at the university’s Fairfax campus were Katie Kuga, the daughter of Holly Ann Kuga; Mariama Swarray-Deen, the first Holly Ann Kuga scholarship recipient; Mary Bramley, director of donor relations and stewardship at Mason; and Scholarship Fund board members Sally Anne Andrew Pyne, Jayana Garvey and Christie Lavin.
“The Women’s Club of Great Falls Scholarship Fund recognizes extraordinary students and provides them with financial assistance to pursue degrees in higher education. Like many of these students, my mom had to support herself growing up especially as it related to education,” said Katie Kuga.
