Scholarship Celebration Dinner

The 1st Annual Forman Scholars Dinner and Celebration was held on June 17, 2015, at the Quaker Meeting House in Salem. This event marked the first of many opportunities designed to foster a community of learning and support among the Forman Scholars and our foundation. A few of the student participants shared their thoughts on the evening, and what they learned:

  • “I enjoyed meeting the extraordinary board and learning more about the foundation. Also, I enjoyed engaging in conversation with fellow scholars about their experiences and the board about how they achieved success in their lives.”

  • “I learned that this organization is getting much bigger every year and realized the full scope of how many people were influenced by it up to this point.”

  • “I learned how important it is to have a strong, determined, and supportive community behind you, because no goal can be accomplished alone, and it's important to have a support system. I also learned more about Forman himself, whose accomplishments left me in awe and so thankful to have been chosen to represent his foundation.”

  • “After meeting the board and seeing how much success they have achieved through education my desire to learn grew even stronger.”

  • “I liked how we were all moved around the room to better get to know one another by brainstorming ideas on the walls.”

  • “I liked the activities we did and the opportunity to socialize with other Forman scholars.”

Thank you everyone for attending. We’re already looking forward to next year!
