Black Hawk College Foundation hosts a Scholarship Appreciation Banquet annually in the fall to recognize the generosity of its scholarship benefactors and award recipients. We invite scholarship creators to speak each year about their decision to establish a scholarship fund and the impact of their generosity on the students attending the Quad-Cities Campus. The award recipients are also invited to share their future plans and demonstrate how the scholarship has enhanced their lives.
Held in November 2015, this memorial special event featured a dinner, a commemorative program about Congressman Lane Evans and special guest speaker. Get complete event details
