Two scholarship funds at Central College have received a generous boost. Both the Geisler Endowed Scholarship Fund and the Penquite Endowed Scholarship Fund will get $100,000 per year, in alternating years up to a total of $5 million. The scholarships will be awarded to juniors and seniors who have been accepted into the teacher preparation program. When completely funded, the gift will support 48-50 renewable scholarships of $5,000 for 12 new students in the elementary and secondary education programs who exemplify the principles and values of Central College.
