The scholarship was initiated in 2017 by Dr. Judith Curtin, AD and renamed this year the HLAA Chester County, PA-Mortimer Bauer Scholarship Award in recognition of the late Mort Bauer’s 20 years of dedication to HLAA-Chester County. The generosity of his friends and family made the second scholarship possible.
