Tonight, Aaron and I attended a concert designed to benefit a scholarship setup in honor of one of our favorite professors, Diana Crane, now that she has decided to retire. We agreed to speak at the event and had the Kennon & Green Foundation make a donation to the fund. I was grateful that I had my voice back, could stand upright, and actually attend let alone make a sound! The performers were very good and I enjoyed meeting Diana’s family, hearing about experiences others had shared with her, and her career.
It was a wonderful evening. By the end of the night, the scholarship fund had raised $18,000 out of the necessary $25,000 required to endow it. The money is designed to be used to help send promising foreign language students overseas as part of their college experience.
