Healy’s estate provides assets valued at nearly $2 million to establish Thomas V. Healy Scholarship funds for students at both CSU-Pueblo and PCC. At CSU-Pueblo, scholarships shall be awarded to students participating in the Thomas V. Healy Center at the Hasan School of Business (HSB). At PCC, scholarships shall be awarded on a non-need basis to students who exhibit “outstanding academic success and community service,” with preference given to students whose goal is to pursue a career in the real estate field.
