Community Ambassador Scholarship

In 2017, the local office of Wells Fargo Advisors (led by Managing Director Gary Swearingen) donated $20,000 to launch the Community Ambassador Scholarship Fund, which supports local high school students looking to continue their education at EIU. Since then many local area businesses and individuals have contributed to this fund. Scholarship recipient Will Dawkins shares his story HERE.
