Charles V. Stanhope ’71
Honors College Study Abroad Fellowship Endowment Fund
“I established this fund to celebrate the excellent UMaine undergraduate education I received. I had opportunities in my work-life to travel around the country and the world. Those travel opportunities taught me about the places I visited and I also discovered what made Maine a special place for me. I am very happy that my fund helps UMaine students travel as part of their undergraduate education, something I wasn’t able to do.”
Caroline Robe will graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting. The Stanhope scholarship helped Caroline fulfill her dream of studying art at the Aegean Center for Fine Arts in Greece.
Joanne Banks Miller ’59
Sanford and Joanne Miller Onward Program Scholarship
“Sonny and I established the Sanford and Joanne Miller Onward Program Scholarship to support students in need, especially those who were seeking a new start for themselves. My late husband was a quiet philanthropist who believed strongly that education was the key. He dedicated his life to helping others succeed.”
Pamela Shimmel is a recipient of the Miller’s scholarship. A non-traditional student, Pamela is a mother and grandmother who returned to school after 25 years and is majoring in nursing.
Telford and Karen Allen
Telford M. Allen Family Scholarship Fund
“Our family’s love of hockey and the desire to assist a hockey player with an education led us to establish the Telford M. Allen Family Scholarship Fund.”
Matt Mangene played on the UMaine hockey team until the spring of 2012 when he signed an entry-level contract with the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers. Matt was a perfect fit for the Allen’s scholarship that was established to help those feisty, scrappy, competitive student-athletes who might spend time in the penalty box.
Ashley Robinson, Owen McCarthy, and Matthew Ciampa, Class of 2010
The Class of 2010, inspired by the philanthropic Class of 1944, spearheaded the project to create a Traditions Garden, which honors the many traditions that are part of the University of Maine. The Traditions Garden is located at the Buchanan Alumni House.
“Living up to the legend of the Class of 1944 has inspired us to leave a legacy. It is a goal that future generations can strive to achieve.”
Team Maine is composed of students whose mission is to assist new students in their transition to the University of Maine community and, along the way, foster a sense of pride in UMaine. Shown here are Team Maine members Jacky Deng and Shelby Saucier.
