Last Thursday, March 21st, we gathered to celebrate the Bennett Scholars Program. We welcomed over 240 people at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and raised over $100,000! 

To those who were able to join us, thank you for being an essential part of last week’s success. Thank you for believing in our students, in each other, in the Bennett Scholars program, and in this event.  Please enjoy the gallery of photos.


“The potential within every Bennett Scholar is boundless, yet it is often obscured by obstacles and challenges beyond our control. The belief and support of individuals like you help us illuminate our path forward.”
