Foundations and Futures Continues in Virtual Format

Foundations and Futures

Registration is open for Arkansas Tech University alumni and friends who wish to view and show their support for the 2021 Foundations and Futures virtual scholarship event.

A recorded presentation will be available beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, April 16. A link will be sent to those who register for the event. There is no cost to register.

The virtual event is in lieu of ATU’s annual scholarship dinner, which was canceled for a second consecutive year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds raised by the event since 2015 have provided scholarship and study abroad opportunities for Arkansas Tech students.

“Scholarship support is more important than ever and you can make an impact for Tech students who will shape the future by being a Foundations and Futures sponsor or donor,” said Jason Geiken, ATU vice president for advancement. “We ask you to consider adding your gift when you register for the event.”

The Foundations and Futures virtual scholarship event will include a recognition of ATU’s Hall of Distinction inductees from 2020 — John Ed Chambers III of Danville, Benny Harris of Russellville and Dr. Rose Clarke Nanyonga of Kampala, Uganda — and 2021 — Travis Beard of Russellville, Howard Ritchie of Russellville and Adena Strickland White of Conway.

Speakers during Foundations and Futures 2021 will include ATU alumnus Dr. Russell Allison and current ATU students Brook Custer of Waldron and Jacey Cooper of Ozark. Viewers will also learn about student projects that have been carried out at ATU over the past year.
