Mark Weber Fund
“I’m proud to have spent my career teaching art at STLCC. I value the education this college provides, and I’m excited to create this scholarship to help students achieve their artistic and educational goals.” - Mark Weber
Please Note: While a scholarship fundraiser had been planned by STLCC-Wildwood's Fine Arts Club for Thursday, April 2, it has been postponed. A new date will be announced for the 2020-2021 academic year.
For more than 30 years, Mark Weber has helped create an environment at St. Louis Community College that embraces and appreciates the arts. In an effort to honor his legacy and support aspiring artists at the Wildwood campus, the St. Louis Community College Foundation established the Mark Weber Scholarship Fund in 2019. Photos from this event are featured below.
The Foundation is currently seeking additional funds to the Mark Weber Scholarship. If you would like to give to this scholarship, donations can be made online, via payroll deduction, by phone or mail.
