Members of the Keystone College community gathered to honor 2016-2017 scholarship donors and recipients with its 20th annual Scholarship Luncheon on campus. The event provided students an opportunity to meet the donors who make it possible for them to pursue their education at Keystone College.
Jedidiah Parker, a sophomore sport and recreation management major from Norwich, N.Y., offered remarks on behalf of scholarship recipients. Chris Doebler, benefactor of the Michelle Huff ’99 Memorial Scholarship, spoke on behalf of scholarship donors.
For the 2016-2017 academic year, more than 200 Keystone students received approximately $335,000 in donor-supported scholarship assistance. Thanks to the generosity of donors, Keystone currently offers nearly 150 donor-supported scholarships.
