"The Carol M. Jacobsohn Foundation came forward and initiated our Endowment Campaign with a challenge grant. That gift inspired others to make their contributions. In doing so, the Jacobsohn Art Suite was named to honor the work of Carol M. Jacobsohn, herself, an artist and connoisseur of the visual arts. The Foundation served as a stimulus, and set themselves apart as invested in education for children with learning differences, the arts and the community."

"Many of our students at AACC have to balance family, work and education needs and manage both resources and time to do so. The Dr. Thomas E. Florestano Scholarship not only provides the financial support that these students need but also the encouragement that others believe in them and help provide access to those resources they need to help them reach their goals. It's support like this that benefits our entire community. We are so very grateful to the Carol M. Jacobsohn Foundation and to Dr. Florestano who continues to play a tremendous role in supporting education in Anne Arundel County."
