WSU Foundation's new scholarship dinner a success

View of Scholarship Event
The 2014 All-Scholars dinner was held Feb. 26, 2014, at Koch Arena.

The WSU Foundation tried a new format for the scholarship dinner this year and it proved to be fun, entertaining and successful. Instead of holding individual college scholarship/donor events as in the past, on Feb. 26 all scholarship recipients and their donors attended a dinner at Koch Arena. Nearly a dozen student displays lined the concourse for attendees to view and instrumental ensembles filled the area with music.

    During the program and dinner, about 500 people listened to student speakers representing each college, in addition to WSU President John Bardo; Elizabeth King, president and CEO of the WSU Foundation; and Deb Byers, director of financial aid.

    There was musical entertainment along with two videos developed by the WSU Foundation.

    During the evening, donors and students could have their photos taken, which were posted on the WSU Foundation's Facebook album. Live tweeting was shown intermittently on two big screens. More than 100 tweets and 35 photos were shared at the event.
