Sheila Murray of West Stockbridge, Tangy Garrison of Chatham, N.Y., and Marla Robertson of Pittsfield have received scholarships from the Anne Sanford Legacy Fund, according to the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.

Established in 2009 by The Women's Times as a fund of Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, the fund provides scholarships for women to attend political or professional leadership training programs.

The fund honors the memory of Anne Sanford, a pioneering businesswoman and community activist.

This will be the final year that the fund will make grants. Since 2009, nine women have benefitted from the scholarships. A total of more than $10,000 has been dispersed.
