Members of the Leland H. and Clarice C. Bagwell College of Education Advisory Board have been hard at work on the details of a major fund−raising initiative — the 1st Annual Bagwell Ball‚ “Celebrating Excellence in Education.”

“This is our first large−scale friend−raising and fund−raising event‚” said Dean of the Bagwell College Yiping Wan. “It is also a celebration of excellence in education. We are hoping to raise between $20‚000 and $25‚000. The funds will be used for student scholarships‚ faculty development and as seed money for new initiatives.”

The evening’s festivities will include silent and live auctions‚ as well as dinner and dancing. The event will be held Saturday‚ Dec. 4‚ at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel.

Gala sub−committee chairs‚ including Ann Marie Burley‚ Wallace Coopwood‚ Susan Ellis‚ Stewart Cobb and Tana Page‚ have already done a tremendous amount of work‚ according to Wan. “All of us at the Bagwell College are so grateful to the people who have generously donated their time to and passionately supported the Bagwell Ball. Their hard work and generosity will help us not only in increasing the number of educators and educational leaders that we produce‚ but also in enhancing the quality of all our educational programs.”
