Central held its 19th Scholarship Dinner in April. The annual event allows student scholarship recipients to personally thank and share a dinner with the donors who helped make their Central education possible. More than 560 donors, students and college staff hosts attended this year’s event in P.H. Kuyper Gymnasium.
Pianist and vocalist Mackenzie Fuller ’19 offered a musical prelude, four scholarship recipients shared their Central experience via video and longtime Central donor Amy Dietrich Eilers ’88 presented “My Central Gratitude Story: From Great to Grateful” and led an activity that encouraged those present to share their stories with each other.
“One of the greatest joys in life comes from knowing you have impacted and lifted someone else in a positive way,” Vice President for Advancement Sunny Gonzales Eighmy ’99 said to the donors. “We sincerely appreciate your commitment to our students and their success today and in the future.”
