The valley showed their support for Marshall University's Scholarship Fundraising Dinner held at Grand Pointe Conference and Reception Center in Vienna on Thursday evening.
This is the fourth scholarship fundraising dinner held by the Marshall Alumni Club of the Mid-Ohio Valley.
Laurie Martin, president of the club says their goal is to raise scholarship funds for students that plan to attend Marshall in the fall of each year.
"Last year we had a goal to be able to give out five $1,000 scholarships and because our dinner was so successful last year we were able to give out seven $1,000 scholarships," she says.
Martin says they have high hopes that they're going to meet the new goal and even add a few more scholarships to that number.
