Students and donors to be recognized during Celebration of Scholars

Yuma, AZ (September 17, 2019) – The Arizona Western College Foundation will hold their Celebration of Scholars event on Thursday, September 19, 2019, to honor scholarship recipients and donors.

The annual appreciation banquet is held to recognize the academic achievements of scholarship recipients and the generosity of donors who have made those opportunities possible. During the 2018-2019 academic year, the AWC Foundation granted almost $350,000 in scholarship awards and program support.  

“This event is a celebration of our mission: to make education universally accessible by removing economic barriers,” said Gladys Anaya, AWC Foundation Coordinator of Development and Alumni Relations. “Our generous donors and community partners are avid supporters of higher education. Students benefit from Foundation scholarships to attain their education, which helps to create thriving communities.”

The event will begin at 6 p.m. in the Schoening Conference Center, located in the 3C Building of the AWC Yuma Campus, 2020 S. Ave. 8E. Donors, community partners, scholarship reviewers, scholarship recipients and their families are invited to attend. The media is also invited to attend this celebration.
