2008-09 Scholarship & Endowment Luncheon

The Scholarship & Endowment Luncheon is an annual tradition that gives us the opportunity to honor donors who enable the "Madison Experience" for so many. Approximately 350 people attended this year's luncheon, including student scholarship recipients, members of the JMU administration and volunteer boards, and of course donors, including many faculty and staff donors.


Giving connects us in many ways, through means unexpected and often undetected. We received a few examples of this during the 2008-09 Scholarship & Endowment Luncheon.

...and how a Madison professor inspired his students to give, more than 20 years after graduating.

We found out how we are all connected to a national hero...
