The Reich College of Education Scholarship Luncheon was held on Friday, April 13, 2018 at Appalachian's Holmes Convocation Center.
The annual event recognized students and patrons. Invited guests included:
Advancement Board members
Scholarship committee members
Rebekah Saylors, Scholarship Coordinator, said, "Scholarships are often the first stepping stones to the access of higher education. They allow students to study abroad, return to school to finish their degree, or even advance their education with a master's or doctorate. For the 2017-2018 academic year, 300 students were awarded keys to their doors of opportunity in the form of almost $775,000 in scholarships."
