“This luncheon is probably the most meaningful event that the Foundation puts on each year,” said Reda Rowell, GSW Foundation executive director. “Students really take advantage of the opportunity to personally thank their benefactors, and donors and their families cherish the experience to connect with the students they support.”
This was the eighth Donor/Scholar Luncheon organized by GSW and the Foundation. For information on how you can donate to the GSW Foundation, call 229-931-2014.
