The College of Health and Human Services honored a fantastic group of bold students at its annual Scholars Recognition Breakfast April 28th. The event also showcased and honored students, faculty and scholarship donors who play a substantial role in supporting the colleges’ mission to “Live Well Central California”. Here are our 2017 honorees:
A total of 27 scholarships were represented at the recognition ceremony. We were fortunate to have the donors and/or their representatives there to meet with their Fresno State scholars. It is their kind gift that contributes greatly to the success of our students, some of whom would not be able to afford education without the generous support of their donors.
