TWC highlights impact of scholarships at annual luncheon
Tennessee Wesleyan College held its annual Scholarship Appreciation Luncheon on Tuesday, March 3. Donors to the college’s endowed and annual scholarship funds had the opportunity to join their student scholarship recipients at a special appreciation lunch. Donors socialized with the student(s) who received scholarships, enjoyed lunch, and heard stories from students who have been impacted by scholarships.
Leading the afternoon’s event with a quote from William Butler Yeats, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire,” TWC president Harley Knowles expressed his appreciation and shared with those gathered why scholarships are a worthy investment. Dr. Suzanne Hine, Vice President for Academic Affairs, shared some heartfelt remarks about her experiences with TWC’s students and the importance and impact of scholarships for them.
“This event provides our donors the occasion to meet with the students they’ve generously invested in, giving each recipient the opportunity and hope to achieve their dream of coming to college,” Randy Nelson, TWC Vice President for Advancement, said. “This would not be possible for many students without donor support of the TWC scholarship fund.”
