Good fortune

The 41 donors and 43 students attending a scholarship luncheon Feb. 19 left the event carrying a little extra wisdom: “fortune” cookies that contained excerpts from thank you letters students wrote to the donors who fund their scholarships. Each place at the tables for the Asian-themed lunch was decorated with a small takeout box, and the cookies inside contained slips of paper saying things like “Your support is a boost of confidence,” and “You have no idea how much this means to me.” The next luncheon that brings scholarship donors together with student recipients is March 25.
