FGCU Scholarship Donors Meet Student Recipients Over Lunch
11/20/2002

Donors who establish scholarship funds at Florida Gulf Coast University get to meet the students who actually receive their scholarship funds! Staged as the President's Scholarship Luncheon, this FGCU event brings students face to face with their benefactors. Over lunch donors get acquainted with the student(s)for whom they make a college education possible. Scholarship students get to thank their benefactors in person and share their plans and hopes for the future. This event is very special and unique at Florida Gulf Coast University.


The media is invited to capture this unique occasion. Staged in the Sprint Room of Whitaker Hall on Wednesday, Nov. 20, the program begins at 12:00 noon with President Merwin addressing the audience of nearly 300 donors and scholarship students. A student will explain what the scholarship means to her. The media is invited to arrive early between 11:30 and 12:00 noon to gain access to students and donors for interviews.

Audrea Anderson will be on hand to facilitate access to donors, students and FGCU staff. Please contact Anderson at 590-1083 if the media plans to cover this event.
