The Capitol College community thanked scholarship benefactors and scholarship students at its annual Scholarship Appreciation Breakfast on Wednesday, April 11. Gathering in the William G. McGowan Center, students, benefactors, faculty and staff celebrated the achievements of Capitol scholars and the generosity of those who help make their education possible.
The event kicked off with Dr. Michael T. Wood, president, welcoming those in attendance. Wood highlighted some of the recent successes of the college, including the growth of the doctoral program.
Following Wood was Capitol alumnus Sotiris Baxevanis ’88, who currently holds the title of chief technology officer at UniSpec and was formerly the president of ISSA-NOVA.
