Andrew Bryan Farnen Fund Awards South Hagerstown High School Student

The Farnen family recently awarded Danielle Stitely with the Andrew Bryan Farnen Fund for Gifted and Talented Youth, a component fund of the Community Foundation of Washington County MD, Inc. Andrew’s family created this fund in memory of him and his love for both the arts and sciences. The fund assists students with the purchase of musical instruments, art supplies, computers, books and other educational materials or programs. The family hopes this $1,700 grant fosters the imaginations of young people who likewise have a passion for knowledge, artistic expression, mathematics or computer science/technology.
