The 2017 Friends of Saint Paul College Scholarship Gala was a tremendous success. The Gala, held on December 7, 2017, raised more than $300,000 for student scholarships. Thank you to all of our committed sponsors, donors, partners and guests for supporting our students.
The evening activities included silent and live auctions, as well as a welcome by president/CEO Rassoul Dastmozd, Saint Paul College and supportive remarks by interim chancellor Devinder Malhotra, Minnesota State, director John Curry, Knutson Construction Services, and corporate senior safety leader Kristin Heizman, Api Group, Inc. A delicious meal prepared by Saint Paul College Culinary Arts students in the Event-Based Dining Capstone Class with Chef Sara Johannes and Chef Manfred Krug.
The highlight of the Scholarship Gala were the student and alumni success stories as shared by Power of YOU student Salyne Vang, and alumni Zaki Omar (‘17), Brian Yazzie (’16), Nickolas Przybilla (’15), and Eloisa Segura (’13). The evening’s celebration was ended with a splendid performance by the Saint Paul College Choir.
