Donor Appreciation/Scholarship Recipient Reception
In the fall, and again in the spring, the College Foundation hosts a special event to thank our significant gift contributors for their donations and investments, especially with regard to providing scholarships and financial assistance to students.
For fall 2007, the Foundation awarded over 200 scholarships to students in need; and in spring 2008, over 80 scholarships were awarded--almost 300 in total. There were 137 awards in fall 2006 and 65 awarded in spring 2007, over 200 in total.
This Special Event also honors the students who have received the various scholarships for that year.
The fall event was held on August 23, 2007. As always, the evening proved to be a heartwarming experience by offering the opportunity for donors and the student scholarship recipients to get to know one another and celebrate the joy of giving!
The spring event was held on February 6, 2008 was a breakfast reception.
