Dr. Harold W. Nash and Lorraine Porter Nash Scholarship

Members of the Class of 1954, Dr. Harold W. Nash and Lorraine Porter Nash established their scholarship at The College at Brockport to recognize an outstanding student in the Teacher Education Program.

Dr. Nash and Mrs. Porter Nash taught in various public schools, colleges and universities, noting that they found their undergraduate education at the College served them extremely well in preparing them to teach. Their hope is to help students beginning their careers in education, encouraging more students to enter a career in education.
