 The DONALD Mount Scholarship

The Mount family has been wonderful and generous benefactor 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.  Mr. Mount was injured in WWII and attended Hanover College afterward. He never forgot the kindness of the people who made it possible for him to get a degree and enjoy  a successful career  after Hanover.

Don Mount '50 and Sue DeWine read inscription on placque in Newby Hall The late Mr. Donald Mount '50 is pictured above shaking hands with former President, Dr. Sue DeWine on September 6, 2012 when Hanover College dedicated the Technology Lab and Model Classroom from his gift. Mount chose the education building because many of Fern Mount's family were teachers and continue to become teachers today.
