It is unique in that it provides face-to-face time for donors to get to know their student recipients and learn about how their scholarships were important in their education and lives."The excellent team of volunteers working to plan the event include Tim Armes, Donna Bertram, Doreen Bruner, Gary Hardee, Dr. Roger Moore, Penny Rowell, Mary Ann Van Siclen and Carol Zimmer.Programming for the event features student and alumni speakers.
