Mary Ogletree Makes Another Gift to Her Endowment
Mary Ogletree initially established the Sidney J. Ogletree Endowment in 1996, in memory of her late husband. Her main focus was to provide scholarships to young people bettering their lives by going to school and working. In the spring of 1997, she created a second endowment, the Sidney J. “Sid” and Mary Ogletree Ethics in Business Endowment.
Last year, she combined the two scholarships and added an additional gift, creating the Sidney J. “Sid” and Mary Ogletree Endowed Scholarship. This year, she added another $10,000 -- bringing her lifetime giving over $55,000. Her endowment(s) alone have impacted the lives of 28 students. With this new gift, there will be many more opportunities for students to further their education without the burden of financial worry, accomplishing Ms. Ogletree's goal.
