Due to the significant support provided by the William T. Morris Foundation and its President, Bruce August P’13, Keene State College has renamed the Honors Program the Keene State College Morris-August Honors Program. The commitment shown to Keene State by the Foundation is due to the incredible work by our Honors Program students, effective teaching practices by faculty, and amazing support from Margaret Walsh, former Honors Program Director, and Bob Kostick, current Morris-August Honors Program Director.

The funds contributed by the Foundation provide students with scholarship assistance, needed resources for travel and high impact learning practices conducted through the program. Mr. August is pictured with some of our Honors Program students, Mr. August’s wife Debra, Keene State College President Anne Huot, previous Honors Program director and professor of sociology and anthropology, Margaret Walsh, and current Honors Program director and associate professor of art, Bob Kostick.
