Hors d’oeuvres, violin strumming and members of the Vanguard University community filled Scott Courtyard on Thursday, September 12, for the Endowed Scholarship Event.
At the event, many students were able to meet the donors who provided their scholarships and thank them. According to Vanguard student and scholarship recipient Kristen Achziger, Vanguard University’s president, Dr. Michael Beals, gave an inspiring message about having a “posture of gratitude.” President Beals thanked contributors and shared some of the history of past Vanguard students.
Achziger, a senior communications major, received an Alumni Endowed Scholarship. “Thank you doesn’t begin to cover it,” she said. Looking back on the event as a whole, she said: “It shows me what it’s like to serve Vanguard students when I graduate and become an alumni.”
