Carole Sloan ccholarship established
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, March 28, 2011
NEW YORK — A new scholarship fund at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology commemorates Carole Sloan, a longtime editor and writer for Furniture/Today and sister publication Home Textiles Today.
The Carole Sloan Fund was endowed with a $50,000 contribution by Steve Pond, the entrepreneur who founded the publications.
Sloan, who died in January after a decades-long career in the industry, was a supporter of education. The fund will support FIT's Home Products Development Program.
"Carole Sloan was, in the truest sense of the word, an icon of the industry," said FIT. "Her admirers in the home textiles and furniture industries will miss her vitality, wisdom and spirit."
Additional contributions to the fund, which are tax deductible, can be made to The Carole Sloan Fund and sent to Educational Foundation at Fashion Industries at FIT, 227 W. 27th St., Room C 204, New York, N.Y. 10001.
