A Season of Giving

The Fourth Annual Executive MBA Perseverance Scholarship Fundraiser Thanksgiving Dinner will take place on Friday, November 8 from 6:00 – 8:00 the Jackson Student Center. The event will feature special guest speaker Dr. Allen Parkman who will discuss the Government Shutdown and Debt Ceiling.

The proceeds from the Thanksgiving Dinner benefit the Perseverance Fund, created by the EMBA Class of ‘09 to honor their classmate Paul Cravens. The fund is designed to support a second-year EMBA student who personifies perseverance. 

This year's recipient will be nominated and chosen by the members of the Class of 2014. The honoree will be chosen by his or her classmates and receive a $500 cash award from the fund. The award recipient will be announced on December 7, 2013.

Tickets can be purchased at the door at a cost of $20 per person, cash or check only.
