On Saturday, March 25, 2023, the University of Mary Washington hosted its annual Donor Appreciation Luncheon and Student Showcase, held in person for the first time since 2019. Donors who have created and supported scholarships and members of the Washington and Heritage societies gathered in the Cedric Rucker University Center, where they engaged with UMW students who shared their research and projects.
After that, they enjoyed lunch in the Chandler Ballroom and listened as scholarship recipients shared how private scholarship support gave them access to a public liberal arts and sciences education filled with impactful learning experiences. President Troy D. Paino provided a university update and thanked donors for their shared commitment to Mary Washington and its students.
