Garrett College honors STEM benefactor

From The Garrett County Republican

McHENRY — The Daniel E. Offutt III STEM Center was formally dedicated Saturday morning at Garrett College, with college, county and state officials praising the late Oakland native and philanthropist for his enduring commitment to STEM education.

“The Offutt Trust endowment is just the latest gift Mr. Offutt has provided Garrett College,” said Don Morin, chairman of the Garrett College Board of Trustees, in reference to the $2 million STEM endowment provided late last year by the trust. “Speaking on behalf of the Garrett College Board of Trustees, I want to express our appreciation for the continued commitment to Garrett College and STEM education that Mr. Offutt’s estate gift represents.”

The college is authorized to use the income generated by the endowment equally for STEM scholarships and STEM equipment upgrades and faculty development.
