Dozens of scholarship recipients enjoyed a unique opportunity to gather with dedicated supporters who have played a pivotal role in shaping their educational journey.

The Hoke O’Kelley Auditorium buzzed with lively conversations and gratitude on Tuesday. The students treasured meeting and getting to know generous scholarship supporters, without whom their higher education path might have been different.

Donors, trustees, and leaders of the Reinhardt community cherished connecting with students and learning about their studies, goals, and accomplishments. The luncheon of gratitude celebrated the commitment to investing in the future of promising students.

The program highlighted more than 150 endowed and annual scholarships contributed over decades that have made thousands of scholarships possible.

“It’s nice to be in an environment where you can talk to students and interact with them as well as the people who make the students’ dreams come true,” explained Phil Landrum, Chairman of the Board of Trustees. “Those scholars are just great, and it makes me proud to be associated with Reinhardt University.”
