Ford Foundation VP Speaks at
First Annual Scholarship Lecture

More than 70 people attended the October scholarship benefit lecture featuring Alison Bernstein '69. Many of the guests enjoyed meeting informally with Ms. Bernstein at the cocktail reception preceding the lecture. Afterwards she gave a thought-provoking presentation on the reasons for maintaining diversity in higher education and on the problems faced by non-traditional students who wish to attend four-year colleges and universities. She also outlined possible solutions to the dilemmas encountered by educators and students in a world that has become both more technologically sophisticated and culturally diverse. After her remarks, the audience participated in a lively question-and-answer session. The event raised $6420 in scholarship funds for area students. Many thanks to all of our generous donors as well as to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace for hosting the event!
