Rotary Education Foundation Welcomes New Board Members During Scholarship Season

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Springs Rotary Education Foundation welcomes Janice White and Sara Miga to its board of directors. The Foundation raises funds to support the post-secondary education and vocational training of graduates from public and private high schools in the greater Saratoga community. 

Janice White is Associate Professor in the Educational Leadership Doctoral Program at Russell Sage College, where she has served as department chair following her retirement as the Superintendent of Schools for the Saratoga Springs City School District in June 2012. White holds a Master of Science degree from the State University of New York at Albany and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Russell Sage College. She also currently serves on the board of directors of the New York State Association of Women in Administration as well as Albany Med and Saratoga Hospital. White is a founding board member of Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar. 

Sara Miga is the Director of External Relations and Strategic Communications in the Department of Communications and Marketing at Skidmore College, where she previously held positions as Associate Director of Media Relations, Advancement Marketing Manager and Leadership Gift Officer. Miga holds a Bachelor of Arts from Skidmore College and a Master of Arts from The Ohio State University. She previously served as the President of the Central Ohio Grant Professionals Association and volunteered as a member of Skidmore’s Creating our Future campus campaign committee. 

The Foundation awards funds each year to the Saratoga Springs Rotary Club for the Club’s scholarship program. Today, the value of individual scholarships ranges from $2,500 to $20,000. Having surpassed its initial goal of raising $1 million in endowed funds, in recent years, the Foundation has provided over $70,000 in scholarships annually. 

Scholarship applications are currently being accepted online or by mail until April 1. High school seniors attending private or public school within the Saratoga Springs City School District who plan to pursue a degree at an accredited 2-year or 4-year college or post-secondary vocational educational institution may apply. 

The Foundation’s annual brunch, which serves as its largest fundraising, is scheduled for June. Scholarship awards will be announced then.
