Illinois QCs Community College Foundation to Thank Supporters

September  20, 2013

People who support Black Hawk College in the Quad Cities will be honored today. The campus in Moline will host a ceremony to unveil its new "Wall of Donors."

Rose Mary Boesen, Executive Director of the college foundation, says the 15-foot wide display of three plaques is located in Building One, across from the book store. The center section honors people who give to the endowment every year, while the other two list members of Black Hawk College's Alumni Hall of Fame and "Heritage Society."

Boesen says her next goal is to make sure potential donors learn about Black Hawk College students who apply for foundation scholarships, and why it's important to support them. She also plans to emphasize the wide variety of degrees, programs, and services the Quad Cities campus offers. Black Hawk College Foundation officials will hold the ribbon cutting at 5:30 tonight.
