Salute to Excellence

In recent years, our students’ need for scholarship funds has greatly increased — and many individual, alumni, faculty, staff, community and corporate donors have come to their aid by establishing a total of more than 200 scholarships.

Through our annual “Salute to Excellence” reception, we recognize the academic dedication shown by scholarship recipients, who often must sacrifice and balance studies with work and family obligations in order to realize their dreams. At the event, students share their stories and get to thank donors directly.

The reception is also an opportunity to commend donors for their generosity. Often our alumni — many of whom received scholarship aid as students here — establish scholarships as a way of “paying it forward,” while corporate and community organizations do so as a way to invest in the future.

This year's Salute to Excellence will take place on March 31, 2015 at Normandy Farm. A formal invitation will be sent to scholarship recipients and donors as the event nears.
