2019 Scholarship Luncheon Held Friday, April 5

The Reich College of Education Scholarship Luncheon was held on Friday, April 5, 2019 at Appalachian's Holmes Convocation Center.

The annual event recognized students and patrons. Invited guests included:

  • Scholarship recipients

  • Donors

  • Advancement Board members

  • College administration

  • 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 2018-2019 academic year, we awarded over $800,000 in scholarship funds to almost 350 students."
