The UK College of Engineering called its alumni and friends to give generously toward scholarships on One Day for UK, the university's inaugural day of giving.
That call was answered. Definitively.
While the original fundraising goal for Lester Scholarships stood at $100,000, supporters surpassed the goal. The final tally: 222 gifts totaling $129,975.
Terry and Sue Strange, alumni of the college who offered a $50,000 match for donations made April 17, paved the way for the college to meet its goal.
The college, and its future Lester scholars, earnestly thank the Stranges and everyone else who supported this effort and made it successful.
