The largest graduating class in Grove City College history set another record before leaving campus last week.
The 606-member Class of 2017 raised more funds than any previous group of graduates for their senior gift to the College: An endowed scholarship that will help others earn a degree from Grove City College.
The class raised $39,807, which will be used to support a rising senior whose faithful service and leadership enriches campus culture. Scholarship giving is crucial to continuing the mission of Grove City College.
Because the College is independent of state support and doesn’t accept federal student loans and grants, ensuring students have access to private financial aid is a priority for the College. Endowed scholarships, which allow donors to have an impact now and in the future, help hundreds of students pay for their Grove City College education.
“The Class of 2017 has really made a great contribution to Grove City College with this senior class gift of an endowed scholarship. These graduates have distinguished themselves academically and philanthropically. Their faithfulness and excellence will have a lasting impact on the College community,” Holly Pipher, director of the College’s Annual Fund.
