Back by popular demand, Aaron Gilchrist (
left), news anchor at NBC-4 and a first-generation-to college student himself, served as Host for the evening--stepping out for the third time to show support for our cause.
His candor about losing his scholarship and having to leave college because he did not not take his education seriously provided a powerful cautionary tale about staying the course to graduation. He credits several teachers along the way for helping him realize the value of a college degree and encouraging him to go into journalism.
Thank you, Aaron Gilchrist, for taking time from your busy schedule to inspire our students.
