Fall scholarship luncheon fosters warmth and appreciation

group shotDespite a substantial snow covering and temperatures hovering in the teens, sixty members of the Norwich family braved the elements to attend the Annual Fall Scholarship Luncheon on November 15. Held this year in Milano Ballroom to accommodate the large number of attendees, the luncheon brought together scholarship donors and recipients in a convivial atmosphere to celebrate the spirit of giving and receiving.

"This year, over 500 students are receiving financial aid in the form of endowed scholarships," said Stewardship Officer Alison Sultan. "These luncheons provide us an opportunity to thank the donors who make these gifts possible," Sultan added.

As a small token of appreciation, each donor at the luncheon was presented a set of eight fall-themed note cards, and was offered complimentary tickets to the football and hockey games taking place later that day. In all, a total of twenty-one scholarships were represented at the luncheon:

  • Class of 1959 Scholarship (established by Charles and Alice Aimi '59)
  • Martha B. Currie Scholarship (established by JoAnn and Roy Bair)
  • David B. Hollis Scholarship
  • Dixie B. and Ruth C. Hollis Scholarships
