More than 60 donors, scholarship recipients, and staff attended the Holy Names University 2013 Scholarship Luncheon on February 21. The program included a welcome address and blessing by Sister Carol Sellman, a message by President William J. Hynes, and a student testimonial by scholarship recipient Maura Granados.
“Through the generous gifts of our benefactors we are able to fulfill our mission of education,” Sr. Carol said.
In the president’s message, Hynes said that scholarships help not only students but also the University and the greater community. “We salute the common good our donors represent,” he said. “We celebrate the uncommon love of the common good.”
Maura Granados, who is expected to graduate in 2016, said that she was blessed to receive support and is inspired to give back to the community.
“I am honored to be one of the recipients of the HNU Catholic High Schools Scholarship. It is because of your generous support that I am able to attend college,” said Granados, who migrated to the United States from Mexico when a child. “Your assistance is supporting not only my dreams, but the American dream of my family for me to go to college.”
