More than 50 scholarship donors and recipients attended the 29th Annual School of Business Scholarship Donor Recognition Program & Luncheon on March 27. Many of the donors present had the opportunity to meet and dine with the students who are the beneficiaries of their generosity.

Dean Barbara E. Kahn thanked the donors for their continued support of the School and its students. Patricia and Allan Herbert, alumni donors with two endowed scholarships, spoke of the many personal benefits they have experienced through giving, which have included developing long-term friendships with student recipients and their families. Afterward, several student scholarship recipients told attendees what the support had meant to their educational and career goals.

Laura Padron, assistant dean for development and stewardship, and George Corton, senior director of development, described the School’s ongoing need for financial support. For information about funding scholarships, contact Padron at 305-284-4052 or laurapadron@miami.edu.
