The third annual Changing Lives Scholarship Dinner will be held at Swan Lake Resort on Friday November 6, starting at 6:00 P.M. Guests will enjoy a social hour followed by a delicious meal prepared by the exceptional culinary staff at Swan Lake Resort. A variety of silent and live auction items will also be available to bid on during the evening.
As always, a special part of the program will be the presentation of two of the College’s highest honors-the Ancilla Award and the Sister Mary Dolores Outstanding Alumni Award. This year John Chandler will receive the Ancilla Award. Mr. Chandler was born and raised in Marshall County and serves as vice-president of Saint Ignatius College Prep in Chicago. He was a member of the Ancilla College Board of Trustees from 2003-2013 and serves as board chairman from 2007-2013.
The Sister Mary Dolores Outstanding Alumni Award will be present to Randall Danielson (’77). Mr. Danielson is the owner of Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home in Plymouth and is a current member of the Ancilla College Board of Trustees, having served since 2006.
Funds raised from this event will help provide need-based grants and scholarships to worthy students to attend Ancilla College, who otherwise might not be able. During the 2014-15 school year, 92% of our students received financial assistance in the form of grants, scholarships or awards. In addition, the college spent more than $1 million of its own resources to help students with their tuition and other costs of education. Your support of this event would be very much appreciated. At last year’s event, nearly $33,000 was raised to help our students.
