A Banner Year

It was a banner year for Radiance: CSU Realizing the Promise, the University's signature event in support of student scholarships. The fourth-annual Radiance was the most successful to date, setting records for amount raised for scholarships - over $1 million - and number of donors - 335.

"These scholarships are more than just dollars," said President Ronald M. Berkman. "They are truly life-changing and allow students to achieve their goal of graduating from college."

Since its inception, Radiance has generated more than $2.6 million to fund scholarships for 974 CSU students in good academic standing who were at risk for dropping out of school because of financial issues.

This year's Radiance was held in the Student Center's Glasscock Family Foundation Ballroom, newly named in honor of alumni Lee and Larry Glasscock. A generous gift from the couple and The Glasscock Family Foundation is funding full-tuition scholarships, including room and board, for first-generation college students at CSU's Monte Ahuja College of Business.

As part of the festivities, President Berkman awarded the President's Medal, the University's most prestigious nonacademic honor, to Eric Gordon, chief executive officer of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. The CSU/CMSD partnership includes Campus International School and MC2STEM High School, both located on the CSU campus.
