When trying to justify how to spend your hard earned dollars or distribute your precious spare time, remember the bridge builder’s response: “Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said, “there followeth after me today a youth whose feet must pass this way. The chasm that was as nought to me to that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be; he, too, must cross in the twilight dim—Good friend, I am building this bridge for him.” (Author unknown)
We owe a debt to our alma mater, more important, we owe a debt to those that would follow in our path. You CAN make a difference regardless of the size or the nature of the gift.
The Association administers numerous scholarship programs that award thousands of dollars each year to deserving PV students regardless of discipline. A number of these scholarships have been established by alumni chapters, families or individuals. Consider endowing a scholarship program of your own, matching gifts are available at the University to maximize your effort. (Call for details)
