Molly Correll was born on the Fourth of July in 1976, as the Bicentennial fireworks began. She carried a spirit of independence and artistic passion with her throughout her life. Raised until age ten by her single father, Greg Correll, Molly was beloved by her two younger sisters, Roxanne and Eliana, and her stepmother, Deborah Kaufman, Director of Marketing and Media at SUNY Ulster.
Deborah and Greg established the scholarship to honor Molly by supporting a SUNY Ulster student who has shared life experiences, artistic passions or overcome challenges similar to those faced by Molly. The award will be given to an adult student studying the arts. Preference will be given to a student who has either worked in hospitality or the service industries; has volunteered for organizations that support crime victims; is a cancer survivor; or who is a single parent and embodies Molly’s dedication to the underdog.
