This gala is a celebration of all the hard work, study, and investment that has gone into attaining your TWU degree.  It will not only be a time to reflect on the special friendships and acquaintances you have created along the journey, but also a time to perhaps forge new relationships.  This gala is also at heart a fund raising event for the Alice Collier Clark Scholarship.  This scholarship has benefited students who have poured themselves into investing towards a graduate degree at TWU, and for some reason or misfortune were not able to continue due to financial circumstances. This scholarship allows the dream of a completed TWU graduate degree to continue! It is in part, a stamp in their "Passport to Your Future!"  Ticket sales and auction proceeds will benefit the Alice Collier Clark Scholarship.
