Scholarship Night 2014: Inspiring and Recordbreaking

With just under 700 assembled guests–150 more than last year’s attendance–Scholarship Night 2014 was truly one for the record books. The $337,000 in funds raised were the highest yet for any 10,000 Degrees event to date. Video featuring alumna Chinna Ford and keynote address by alumnus Hugo Que were both riveting and demonstrated the courage and resilience of 10,000 Degrees students. Shown here, (Chinna far left and Hugo at podium) the alumni are joined by the new Leadership Corps of 10,000 Degrees.

The evening was a labor of love made manifest by the volunteer Scholarship Night committee, led by chairs Susan and Toby Mumford, and supported by the staff and students of 10,000 Degrees.

You can watch the video show that evening, called “I Am,” and featuring the voice and story of 10,000 Degrees alumna Chinna Ford.
