The 2023 Scholarship Celebration recognized donors who supported scholarships during the Campaign for Carolina, which launched in October 2017 and concluded in December 2022. Donors were honored for their instrumental giving efforts during the campaign and beyond. Scholarship recipients performed and shared their stories, and a slideshow displayed powerful statistics — all reflecting the impact of the many donors who supported scholarships during the campaign.
New to this year’s event: Donors were invited to share their stories, as well. This unique perspective allowed the audience and scholarship students to understand the passion and purpose that drives philanthropy. The program included a welcome from Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz, followed by messages from Erskine B. Bowles ’67, alumnus and founder of the Blue Sky Scholars Program, and Ilana Finley ’00, a Carolina Covenant alumna and donor.
