A Legacy of Giving
Those who take leadership roles in supporting academic programs and scholarships play a vital role in shaping a new generation of Dickinsonians and pave the way to success for some college’s most promising students. An April 21 ceremony at Dickinson, Building the Future Together, honored their contributions.
The luncheon introduced individual donors and members of the John Dickinson and Old West societies to students who benefit directly from their generosity. It included performances by the Third-Degree step team and The Syrens and an address by scholarship recipient Danielle Goonan ’07, a Fulbright scholar who works with the Clinton Global Initiative and is a senior fellow of the Humanity in Action U.S. planning board.
“I have followed in your footsteps and have given back to Dickinson every year since the class of 2007’s senior challenge … because I know firsthand that the Dickinson experience is worth it,” Goonan told students and fellow alumni. “My investment in Dickinson isn’t just an investment in limestone buildings and books; it’s an investment in people like me.”
