1965 Class Endowed Scholarship

We did it! Thanks to the generosity of this amazing class, our class endowed scholarship fund is now over $25,000. This means that next year a worthy Gustie student will receive a class of 1965 scholarship. 

Let's not be done yet. The more we give to the scholarship, the greater the award amount will be for that deserving Gustie next year and for future students in perpetuity. What an amazing way to mark our 50th reunion. We hope you will consider making a gift, even if you're unable to attend the reunion.
