Benefactor Donates $10,000 to Establish Dr. James Callaway Memorial Aid Fund

December 20, 2005

Mrs. Barbara J. Callaway of Cape May Court House has donated $10,000 to the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation to establish an emergency aid fund in memory of her late husband, dentist Dr. James Callaway, the college said today.

Named the Dr. James Callaway Memorial Aid Fund, the gift is earmarked for “emergency funds for African-American male students with financial needs not covered by financial aid.” The fund will be administered by ACCC’s financial aid office.

Lynda Pagliughi of Avalon, president of the Foundation, said, “Both Mrs. Callaway and her late husband were great supporters of building a new campus in Cape May County. I am very excited about this gift because it attests to the pride residents of the county take in their marvelous new educational facility and the services it provides to Cape May County students.”

ACCC President Peter L. Mora wrote Mrs. Callaway, “I wish to offer my sincerest thanks for your donation of $10,000…your generosity will make a tremendous impact on students in need.”

The ACCC Foundation will invest the gift and use the income it generates to provide the aid to students. Those interested in making a gift through the Foundation can do so by calling (609) 343-5634.
