September 16, 2013

PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin-Platteville College of Liberal Arts and Education will host a reception on Thursday, Sept. 19, from 4-5 p.m. in the Harry and Laura Nohr Gallery, Ullsvik Hall, to honor student scholarship recipients.

The College of LAE will award 42 scholarships to 59 students. Those in the audience who have established scholarships or donated to them will also be recognized.

This annual reception is an opportunity to acknowledge the generosity of donors whose gifts make it possible for the college to recognize student dedication and talent. The financial assistance donors provide enables many students to pursue their studies at the university.

Dr. Mittie N. Den Herder, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at UW-Platteville, will welcome everyone. Dr. Elizabeth A. Throop, dean of the College of LAE, will present the general College of LAE scholarships and each department chair will present his or her department’s scholarships.

The UW-Platteville School of Education will hold a separate scholarship reception to honor its students at a later date.

Everyone is welcome to attend this free event.
