Class of 2022 Launches the Centennial Scholarship Fund
Bucking the tradition of raising money for a bench, tree or other physical object to commemorate their time at Kent Denver, this year the Class of 2022 launched the Centennial Scholarship Fund to provide financial aid to future KDS students.
The goal of the seniors was to get all 119 members of the class to participate, and they achieved that mark—with the help of this amazing callout video—two weeks earlier than planned! Students were aided by the Kent Denver Alumni Board, whose members offered a match of $16 for every student who participated.
The seniors also challenged KDS alumni to match their 119 gifts and start what they hope will become a fun, long-lasting annual tradition. 125 alumni, family members and friends participated, easily surpassing the goal.
All together, the gifts from our 119 seniors and the larger Kent Denver community—including current parents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty and staff—raised $34,648, enough to fund a full scholarship for a future KDS student!
We couldn't more proud of our Centennial class or more grateful for the generosity of this community.
