Carole Sloan scholarship established at FIT

New York - HTT founding editor-in-chief Carole Sloan's support of education is being commemorated by the estblishment of a scholarship program in her honor for the Home Products Development Program at the Fashion Insitute of Technology.

The Carole Sloan Fund was endowed with a $50,000 contribution by Steve Pond, the entrepreneur who founded HTT and sister publication Furniture Today.
