Many Randolph students were able to personally meet and thank the donors who provided scholarships during a special luncheon recently. Hosted in conjunction with the College’s seventh annual Symposium of Artists and Scholars, which was held April 23-24, the annual donor luncheon offers the opportunity for Randolph to recognize and celebrate scholarship donors as well as members of the Quillian Society.
During the luncheon students and donors shared conversations about life at the College and how the generous financial support makes a significant difference to students each day. Sarah Biegelsen ’17 spoke on behalf of students, expressing their gratitude for the donor’s commitment to students and the College. Laura Pennington ’08 offered the keynote address, underscoring the value of a Randolph education in the work place. She told the luncheon attendees that Randolph graduates are at an advantage because they are trained to be problem solvers and to ask and answer the critical question: “What else can we try?”
The Symposium brings together artists and scholars of all disciplines to share the results and highlights the best work being produced at the College. Modeled after a traditional academic conference, the event features a keynote speaker, oral presentations, readings of creative works, musical, theatrical and dance performances, exhibitions of student artwork, and poster presentations.
