Radiance Event Sets New Fundraising Record

Posted May 18, 2017 in Articles

For the third consecutive year, generous donors helped Radiance: CSU Realizing the Promise achieve more than $1 million for scholarships. In fact, this year’s fundraising event set a record of $1.3 million.

“You are giving our students the opportunity to graduate from college and succeed in life,” President Ronald M. Berkman told a crowd of some 500 attendees at the seventh-annual Radiance event.

As part of the festivities, Dr. Berkman awarded the President’s Medal, the University’s most prestigious nonacademic honor, to Rick Chiricosta, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Medical Mutual of Ohio.

Since its inception in 2011, Radiance has raised more than $6.1 million. Through this academic year, more than 1,520 scholarships have been awarded to keep students in school and on track to graduation.
