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.
