As the lead gift, Roger Moser of Moser’s Supermarkets has contributed $2,500 to the Fulton Colleges Fund Drive.
The annual drive began at an 8 a.m. Tuesday breakfast for volunteers in the Aldridge Recreation Center at William Woods University.
“I am pleased to offer up the lead gift for the Fulton Colleges Fund Drive. The students, educators and staff contribute greatly to our local community,” Moser said.
The Fulton Colleges Fund Board of Associates has awarded a total of $48,000 to Callaway County students attending either Westminster College or William Woods University this fall.
“As a community,” Moser said, “our support for the Fulton Colleges Fund is vital and enables the fund to continue providing scholarships to local students attending William Woods and Westminster. An investment from local businesses in education is needed now to make this year’s drive a huge success.”
Since the 1960s, the Board of Associates has provided hundreds of scholarships to the two Fulton colleges. It has given many Callaway County residents an opportunity for a college education.
Matt Gowin, Fulton Colleges Board of Associates president, said donors to the fund realize the value of a quality education provided by Westminster College and William Woods University.
“The Fulton Colleges Board of Associates greatly appreciates any support of our efforts to provide important financial assistance to local high school students who choose to pursue higher education in our community,” Gowin said.
