Huntington Bank graciously donated $1500 to the Virginia Marti College Foundation. The scholarship was to be awarded to a current student actively involved in the community. Maryann McKenney, an interior design student, was the recipient of this scholarship. Maryann participated in various community related projects sponsored by the College, and is a firm believer in giving back to the community. A true volunteer, she is happy to share her time and talents with others.
