Changing Lives Scholarship Dinner

Swan Lake Resort, P5203 Plymouth Laporte Trail, Plymouth, IN 46563

Reception: 5:30 p.m.

Dinner: 6:30 p.m. 


As we begin our second year as Marian University's Ancilla College, we are elated to gather in support of student scholarships and leadership.

It is with these scholarships that we can fulfill our commitment to service and transformation. For the students who benefit from these scholarships will develop professionally, personally, and spiritually, and will positively impact our community as they enter the workforce. Their talents will spur economic, social, and cultural growth in northern Indiana like our mission dictates. 

We are especially grateful for the support of our donors because without them we would have no scholarships to celebrate. You are unequivocally impactful to the success of Marian University's Ancilla College.
