The Herkimer County College Foundation announces the establishment of the John and Dr. Ann Marie Murray Engineering Science Scholarship at Herkimer College.
The award has been endowed in honor of John and Ann Marie Murray, for deserving students enrolled in the Engineering Science program, beginning in the fall 2015 semester. It is the first scholarship established for Engineering Science students at Herkimer College.
Scholarship recipients will be selected by the Scholarship Committee. To qualify, students must complete 15 credit hours in the Engineering Science program with a GPA of 3.0 or better, and plan to continue in the program the following semester.
Ann Marie Murray served as the third president of Herkimer College from August 2008 to January 2014. Before holding several administrative positions at SUNY Broome and Hudson Valley Community College, she was a long-time professor of mathematics at Hudson Valley. John Murray was an engineering science mathematics professor at Hudson Valley Community College for 42 years.
Herkimer College recently received approval from the State Education Department to the associate in science degree in Engineering Science with enrollment beginning in the fall of 2014. The program will prepare students for transfer to a four-year engineering program in mechanical, civil, electrical or environmental engineering. Courses include Engineering Science I and II, Calculus, Physics I and II, Statics, Dynamics and Strength of Materials. Transfer agreements are in place with SUNY Binghamton and SUNYIT for graduates of Herkimer’s program.
