On October 10, more than 100 Johnson College students, family and friends, donors, faculty and staff gathered for the College's Annual Scholarship Luncheon, which honored 2012-2013 scholarship recipients as well as donors.
Speakers at the event included donors George Sweda, of Sweda Advertising, and Jack Reager, of Blackout Design, who both spoke about the importance of supporting Johnson College and its students.
Presidential Scholarship recipient Ali Frankenfield 2013, a Veterinary Technology student, also addressed the crowd, sharing, The fact that there are people out there who care about us students and donate their energy, time, and money to help us through the financial aspect of our college journey will never cease to amaze me. I owe them my heart and eternal gratitude.
