Senior Class makes record gift to Elon

Members of the Class of 2006 and their parents contributed more than $27,000 in this year's Senior Class Gift campaign. Read this note for details…

Senior Class President Jason Pressberg presented a check for $27,155 to Elon President Leo M. Lambert prior to Commencement ceremonies May 20. The gift surpasses the class goal of $25,000. Each year, leaders of the senior class conduct a campaign, encouraging classmates to demonstrate their commitment to giving back to Elon before they graduate. The funds will create the Class of 2006 Scholarship, benefiting a member of next fall’s freshman class who has financial need.

This year, parents also contributed to the campaign, making gifts in honor of their graduating seniors. A total of 523 students and parents contributed to the campaign.
