SCCC Foundation Receives $5,000 Donation

The Merriam Insurance Agency is pleased to announce that it has donated $5,000 to the Jenson E. Merriam Memorial Scholarship through the SCCC Foundation.

Designed by the Merriam Insurance Agency, the scholarship is named in memory of Jenson Merriam (November 5, 1993–December 23, 2011). Jenson, a former SCCC student, was a gifted writer, illustrator and filmmaker. His passion for helping others will live on through each student who receives this award.

“My son always took an interest in those who were not blessed as well as was he. Jenson would be very gratified to know that many students are able to complete their education as a result of the scholarship fund set up in his memory,” said Jenson’s father and Merriam Insurance president, Brian H. Merriam.

How to Donate

Donations to the Jenson E. Merriam Memorial Scholarship will go towards endowing the scholarship, which will help keep Jenson’s memory alive by awarding a scholarship to at least one student every year in perpetuity.

The Jenson E. Merriam Memorial Scholarship was created by a dedicated community supporter, the Merriam Insurance Agency, and supports under-resourced students seeking degrees at SUNY SCCC.
