Gardner-Quinn scholarship fund two-thirds of way to endowment goal

Print More

A scholarship fund established in memory of slain University of Vermont student Michelle Gardner-Quinn has raised $55,000 in the year since her death.

The 21-year-old student’s parents — John-Charles and Diane Gardner Quinn — set up the fund to help students like their daughter, who had a strong interest in environmental issues.

If the fund reaches $100,000 it will meet UVM’s requirement for a permanently endowed scholarship fund.

Yesterday was the first anniversary of Michelle Gardner-Quinn’s abduction, sexual assault and killing. Former Richmond resident Brian Rooney is charged in the crimes and is awaiting trial.
