WHITTINGTON, IL (KFVS) - Rend Lake College students and RLC Foundation donors met recently to share stories, laughs and a delicious dinner.
At the banquet, givers are able to learn more about their beneficiaries over a nice meal, and they pose for a photo together. During a short program, everyone hears about scholarships given through the Foundation, including perspectives from contributors and recipients. RLCF CEO Shawna Manion started the dinner program with words of appreciation and cheer.
“We are all here for the students tonight, we’re here to help them and to encourage them.” she said. “What the students at RLC are able to accomplish and the magnitude of the obstacles they are able to overcome is nothing short of inspiring. I want you all to see what a student can do with a scholarship, how far it can take them, how much it can help. It’s amazing to witness.”
