The "Opening Doors" story series celebrates the power of scholarships to change the lives of Elon students and the generosity of donors who make this transformation possible.
The dedication was in recognition of the ongoing generosity of Robert A. Clohan III '67 and his family, including a $2 million gift from Clohan and his son, trustee Charles Clohan '98, in support of Richard W. Sankey Hall.
The 5,400-seat, 160,000-square-foot facility will provide a premier gathering space for major campus events and serve as the new home for Elon's basketball and volleyball programs when it opens next year.
Inspired by Elon's commitment to scholarship funding, retired faculty member Nancy Midgette, of Montreat, North Carolina, decided to support students in the Odyssey Program with her gift.
The Sam and Vicky Hunt Scholarship will assist two students each year in the Odyssey Program, a highly selective program for students with exceptional ability and promise and significant financial need.
