2017 Presidential Partners Awards Luncheon

Presidential Partners

The annual Presidential Partners Awards Luncheon brings donors and students together to celebrate this prestigious program that was founded in 1993.

This year's luncheon, held on April 23 in the Nigh University Center Ballrooms, provided insight on one scholarship in particular: The Allison Martin-Pumphrey Scholarship. Allison died suddenly in her sleep in February 2005, leaving behind her husband, daughter and family. In her memory, the Allison Martin-Pumphrey Endowed Scholarship was started. Allison's husband, Brad, and their daughter, Madeline, present the award each year. To date, the fund has continued to grow and is now able to support two $2,500 scholarships each year.

To learn more about Allison's story, watch the video shared at this year's Presidential Partners luncheon. It can be found here.
