Scholarship Dinner Brings UVM Students, Donors Together
The University of Vermont raised nearly $8 million in scholarship support from alumni and other private donors last year, and Thursday night was the moment for grateful students to say “thanks.”
Among the scholarship recipients attending was Kane Tobin, a junior enrolled in the School of Business Administration. Tobin is a 28-year-old U.S. Army veteran who served two deployments in Afghanistan as a helicopter crew chief and door gunner immediately following high school in Hyannis, Mass. College is a personal dream he wanted to pursue after fulfilling what he felt was a debt to his country, he said.
“Scholarship support speaks volumes about the university and the importance that the university places on supporting its student body,” Tobin said.
