Oglebay Institute, founded through the visions of the Oglebay family in 1930, is a nationally unique charitable organization offering quality programming for lifelong learning with a multi-disciplinary approach. Four departments offer programs in environmental education; performing arts; regional history interpretation and preservation; and visual and creative arts.
The objective of Oglebay Institute is to be a leader in its disciplines by improving quality of life through education, recreation, culture and creative outlets for personal and professional growth and enrichment. Grounded in the successful traditions of its past, Oglebay Institute acts singly or collaborates with other organizations; serves a diverse audience; and challenges itself through its expansive vision to continually respond to the needs of its many publics.
Money from the scholarship will provide support for autistic children to study dance at Oglebay Institute in Wheeling, W.Va.
This way, Gloria’s dream can still come true.
