Annually in April, the Alumni Association hosts a Scholarship Fundraiser Event to support our scholarship program mission to help generate financial assistance for education purposes. Typically during this time, alumni members are charged with the responsibility of selling tickets or making a donation to this event to benefit the overall success and net proceeds available for giving.
