Giving Thanks Day
The Fourth Annual UVa-Wise Giving Thanks Day is planned for November 7, 2014, to provide students an opportunity to show appreciation of the many patrons who provide scholarships and other critical support. The event was again be held in the Slemp Student Center Atrium.
The event allows UVa-Wise and its students to show their donors how their generosity makes a difference, said Valerie Lawson, director of development.
“Our students provide the critical link between the College and its donors in conveying how private support makes a huge difference in the UVa-Wise educational experience,” Lawson said.
Each student benefits from private support, but the benefits are often subtle. For instance, the private support behind the Smith Dining Commons essentially provided the equivalent of a scholarship for each student over the next 10 years.
