The Mount Scholarship

The Mount family has been wonderful and generous benefactors of the Hanover Education Program. In addition to the building, furniture, and technology upgrades in Newby Hall financed by the late Don Mount '50 (in memory of his wife, Fern), the Mounts also endowed a scholarship for future teachers at Hanover College.  Please inquire about this via the Financial Aid Office. These are gifts that will keep giving for generations to come and we are proud to honor this fine gentleman's memory with a plaque and portrait in Newby Hall.
