Doris E. Schwartz Education Fund
Doris Schwartz, a long-time resident of West York, was nearly a century old when she died in 2013. During her lifetime, she took full advantage of all life had to offer. She was an educator and a flight attendant who travelled extensively around the world, and her vast and varied experiences gave her an appreciation of the importance of education at every stage of life. The Doris E. Schwartz Education Fund was created in 2013 from Doris’s estate under the direction of her friends and executors Nancy L. Frey and Kenneth R. Smith, with help from Doris’s attorney John Stitt. Doris’s passion for education and lifelong learning will now help teachers and students in York County. Public school teachers will be able to apply for a fellowship that will meaningfully increase their capacity as a leader. The student scholarship will benefit every school district in York County and will be awarded to students who meet certain qualifications and demonstrate character, academic achievement, and financial need.
