CenDel Foundation announces Dr. C. Edward Graybeal Scholarship Award
The CenDel Foundation is proud to announce the recipient of the Dr. C. Edward Graybeal Scholarship Fund. Milford High School senior Joshua Strassle was awarded the scholarship in May 2020.  Mr. Strassle will be attending the University of Delaware in the fall and plans to major in Computer Science.
"I want to thank all of those involved in supporting this award, especially Dr. Graybeal and his family, for wanting to recognize Milford seniors and supporting them through college. To be given such an award as this makes all the hard work seem really worth it. It also provides even more motivation for the next stage in my life, as I have another support group that has faith in me and wants to see me do well. This support also takes a weight off my back since I won’t have to focus as much as paying for school, but rather doing well in school,” said Strassle.
The late Dr. Graybeal, the scholarship’s namesake, understands the value of financial aid in helping further students’ academic careers. He established the scholarship fund with the help of the CenDel Foundation early in 2017. This fund will be used to make scholarship grants to educational institutions on behalf of students who qualify under the criteria specified by the Donor. For more information visit
