Executive MBA Class of 2011 Fulfills Scholarship ChallengeClass Acts, Fall 2011 | Comments | Print |
This past spring Bruce Brockenborough, EMBA’01, President and CEO of Hannan Supply Co., issued a challenge to the Executive MBA Class of 2011. If they would raise at least $145,000 for their class gift with 100 percent participation, he would pledge money of his own to help launch much-needed scholarships within the EMBA program. The Class of 2011 responded by raising a total of $150,000—the largest amount ever raised by an EMBA class—with every student contributing. Brockenborough followed through as well, and the combined gifts established both the Brockenborough Family Scholarship and EMBA 2011 Scholarship funds, which will provide financial support for deserving EMBA students.
