A Virginia family with ties to Fairmont has established a new endowed scholarship for students studying special education in the College of Education, Health and Human Performance at Fairmont State University. John A. Carbone and Mary Lois Carbone have donated $30,000 to Fairmont State in honor of their late son to create the John Anthony Carbone, Jr. Memorial Endowed Scholarship.
The Power of Giving
Private support is the driving force that enables Fairmont State University to move forward. The impact of private giving can be seen in nearly every area of the University. Each gift carries with it the power to change a student’s life. The gift of education really does change the future.
