A record number attended the 利记APP官网状态 未来的基础's Student Investment 午餐 and 拍卖 on Thursday, November 10, 2022, and helped raise more than $300,000 奖学金.

Hanceville, AL — The 利记APP官网状态 未来的基础 held its annual Student Investment 午餐 and 拍卖 Thursday, raising more than $300,000 towards providing a better future for 利记APP官网状态 社区 College students thanks to the record number of supporters in attendance.

“It’s not easy being a college student,” said 未来的基础 President 比尔圣. 约翰. “It takes commitment, time, a lot of hard work and money. 有很多 hurdles that must be cleared. There are many who have the drive and are willing to put in the work who might not quite be able to afford the time away from a job or maybe just the money to buy gas. That’s where the 未来的基础 comes in. 我们试着 to help as many of those committed students as possible.

“Over the last decade the Foundation has awarded over $2 million dollars in scholarships to over 3,000 deserving students,” St. 约翰说. “This 一年 alone we awarded over $410,000 to a record number 249 students.”

St. 约翰 said he is proud to serve on the Foundation board and be a supporter of the college like the nearly 600 seated in 传统银行 Arena at Tom Drake Coliseum.

“Y’all keep coming back and keep supporting the students, keep showing up and buying 拍卖品,”他说. “I don’t think you’re here for the lunch. 我知道你不是 来听演讲. You know that the graduates of this institution are the lifeblood 我们的社区. You know that they are the energy that drives us all forward. 谢谢 you for being here again and thank you for bringing your wallet. 给自己一个大大的 pat on the back and when you go in almost any business in this county, look around and know that you’ve helped someone who matters to be there.”
