HARRISBURG, PA — The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC) is pleased to announce the Faerie L. Angle Memorial Scholarship Fund has awarded $45,000 to one Franklin County resident studying law. The Faerie L. Angle Memorial Scholarship Fund has awarded $230,000 since 2017 to support young persons from Franklin County, Pennsylvania, entering their first, second, or third year of a J.D. Program with the intent to become a lawyer after graduation.
Scholarship recipient Vincent Wijaya of Chambersburg is in his second year of law school at Penn State Dickinson Law. Wijaya has worked at his family’s restaurant for over a decade and is an assistant coach for the Chambersburg Boys’ Tennis Team. He also had the opportunity to represent the Caribbean Islands/South American countries at the Model Organization of American States (MOAS) to debate topics such as cybersecurity and drug trafficking.
A previous professor of Wijaya stated, “In my 20 years of teaching at Shippensburg University, no other student has come close to matching Mr. Wijaya’s intellectual acumen, his hunger for knowledge, and his work either.” After completing his law degree, Wijaya plans to practice Immigration or Sports Law.
Faerie L. Angle was the widow of Roy S.F. Angle, Attorney-at-Law. Her Last Will and Testament provided for the creation of a Law School Educational Trust Fund, which provides scholarships for young persons from Franklin County, Pennsylvania, studying to be lawyers. TFEC celebrates Ms. Angle’s generosity and strives to be good stewards of her legacy.
“TFEC is happy to facilitate this scholarship to help students reach their educational goals,” said TFEC President and CEO Janice Black.
