Jim Fenningham Memorial Scholarship
October 2016 marked the three year anniversary of Jim's death.
Jim had a Masters Degree in Counseling. As an administrator he was dedicated to helping college students achieve academic success. He started his career at Grossmont Community College in San Diego County as the Director of Admissions & Records. He ended his career as the Dean of Counseling & Student Services. Over his years at the college his caring and gentle way garnered respect from all he encountered. He was a good man.
Jim spent 24 years passionately assisting students and staff at Grossmont College. He often commented on how the people he worked with felt like family. I can think of nothing better to honor my husband and friend than to help a student through college.
Shortly after his death I started The Jim Fenningham Memorial Scholarship at Grossmont College. One semester this scholarship is awarded to a student in the Arts & Humanities. The next semester it is awarded to a student in the Social Sciences. I opted to have this scholarship alternate between these two majors because the two areas were a major focus of Jim's adult life. He had a passion for both.
My goal is to continue the scholarship for many years to come. With the help of the Grossmont College Foundation I would like to make this a Perpetual
Scholarship. I need to raise money to accomplish this. If you would like to help with this cause, all donations would be greatly appreciated.
We are about half way to making this a perpetual scholarship. This has been my goal since I created this account.
All donations no matter how small or large are appreciated from the depths of my being.
I have raised over $9000 to make this a perpetual scholarship. I only have $16000 to go. When you consider donating to a cause please remember this one. Jim would be proud. He was so dedicated to student success
Please help, if you can. Any donation no matter how small is deeply and gratefully appreciated.
If you would like to pass this on to your Facebook, Twitter, e-mail contacts please don't hesitate.
This is a very heart felt mission on my part.
Could you consider sharing this with your facebook or other social media friends?
Each donation helps a student achieve their college goals.
