THE PETER MCPHERSON SCHOLARSHIP
Peter McPherson was employed with Spurwink for over 30 years and served in a variety of leadership roles, including President/CEO. When Peter retired in 2006, Spurwink employees chose to honor his commitment to the agency through the creation of a Scholarship Fund in his name. The Peter McPherson Scholarship honors Peter’s life-long dedication to individuals who have faced behavioral, emotional or developmental challenges in their lives. The scholarship fund was designed to provide assistance to current and former students of Spurwink as they graduate and pursue transition-related or post-secondary goals.
