Endowment Reaches $10K Milestone


In 2017, a group of administrators and faculty members at Wor-Wic Community College started building an endowment fund to preserve the legacy of Dr. Elinor Phillips Cubbage and to ensure continued funding for Wor-Wic’s honors program and the arts on campus.

Cubbage, a professor emeritus who taught English at Wor-Wic since 1977, inspired many Wor-Wic students over more than 40 years. She founded the college’s Arts Club and creative arts journal, “Echoes & Visions,” and oversaw both for more than 20 years. She also founded the honors program in 1995 and went on to serve as program director for 15 years. A recent donation brought the fund total to the $10,000 needed to create an endowment at the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore.

Anyone interested in honoring Cubbage or supporting the arts or honors at WorWic can send a check, made payable to the Wor-Wic Foundation with “Cubbage Honors & Arts Endowment” written on the memo portion, to the Wor-Wic Foundation, 32000 Campus Dr., Salisbury, MD 21804. Gifts can be made by credit card by calling 410-334-2948 or online through the “Donate” link on the college website at www.worwic.edu.
