Like most colleges, at City College, in order to maintain funding, scholarships are mostly dependent upon private donations.

According to Director of Institutional Advancement Tracy Newman, City College alumna Hulda Mae Stone passed away in September 2011, bequeathing half of her estate—$1.375 million in total—to City College’s scholarship and student emergency loan program.

The donation is the largest in City College’s history. Stone attended City College for two years in the 1930s, and according to Newman, she deeply believed in the need for higher education.

The funds should be available to applicants next academic year through City College’s scholarship program, Newman said.

The City College’s Health Fair, presented April 25-26 by Health Services and facilitated by Blood Source, allowed students to have the opportunity to help save another human being’s life.

Alexis Bell, undecided major and City College student/athlete, offered to become a blood donor. She said she believes that everybody has a right to live. “I will provide anything that I can, just to know that I am helping out an individual in need,” said Bell.

The event was guided by Wendy Gomez, City College nurse.

According to bloodsource.org, the purpose for this event was to give students the ability to be blood donors and help save patients who are in need of more blood in order to remain alive.

Jazzmine Brown, kinesiology major, also donated blood, but she explained her experience about it as “uncomfortable.” “I would love to save everybody and that‘s the main reason why I decided to do this,” said Brown.

More information on Blood Source is available at www.bloodsource.org or to become a blood donor, please visit http://www.bloodsource.org/Donate.aspx
