Thursday, October 13, 2016

10:00 a.m. Walnut 101

$40.00 per person, includes lunch and lectures

October 13, 2016 will be an exciting day at the Foundation!

For the first time we are collaborating with UNC-Chapel Hill in order to bring a popular Adventure in Ideas seminar to the WCC campus. Popular professors Lloyd Kramer and Max Owre will interpret Napoleon’s controversial life and career in order to address the questions that have interested people for 200 years: “Was Napoleon a genius or a tyrant?  Why does Napoleon have enduring influence?” Historians and writers have been fascinated by these questions as they examine Napoleon’s influence on European culture and his impact on American history, the results of which we still see today in our modern political, military, and cultural history. Who was Napoleon and why does he remain important two centuries after Waterloo?

We are happy to report that we had a very successful 24th Annual Scholarship Invitational, raising $176,000 all for student scholarships! This record breaking amount makes it possible for The Foundation to continue to help deserving students! We have been fortunate enough to host a Scholarship Invitational each year since 1992. Over the past 24 years the Scholarship Invitational has raised more than $1,600,000.00 for student scholarships. This year at the dinner auction Candace Jones, a former WCC student, scholarship recipient and Foundation work study spoke to those in attendance.
