Guests enjoyed a special Student Showcase in the Mayo Courtyard. The program featured speeches by UMW Foundation Chair Kathy Mehfoud ’70, UMW President Richard V. Hurley, scholarship donor Art Steinberg, and former scholarship recipient Fiona Cobb ’08. Keepsake photos of donors and recipients were taken in front of Kalnen Inn. Hosted by the Office of University Advancement, the annual event honored Scholarship donors and members of the Heritage and Washington Societies.
