“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” ~ Helen Keller
Some of the College of Health and Human Services’ brightest Bulldogs came together on May 1st as they were honored during the colleges’ annual Scholars Recognition Breakfast. This is an opportunity to recognize and honor the students, faculty and scholarship donors who play an integral role in supporting our mission to “Live Well Central California”.
A total of 16 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.
