W&M Impact News

Bold stories from the 2019 Scholarships Luncheon

More than 400 people gathered at this year's Scholarships Luncheon during Homecoming & Reunion Weekend. Several students and alumni shared their powerful stories of how scholarships made their bold moments possible. Special guest Jill Ellis ’88, L.H.D. ’16, two-time World Cup winner, told the audience how her scholarship to W&M changed the trajectory of her life.

An artist’s gift

William Sterling’s ’59 early interest in art prompted him to become a fine arts major at William & Mary. One of his thoughts before his death on New Year’s Eve last year was to leave a gift that would benefit the university’s Department of Art & Art History.

Roaring Forward

It’s hard to believe that summer break is about to come to a close — although the blistering heat in the ’Burg remains — and the new academic year will begin in a little over a week. There’s so much to look forward to in our final year of the For the Bold campaign and there are countless opportunities to make an impact on the university and all its students, faculty and alumni in the next 10 months.
