Golden Eagle $99 or More Scholarship Initiative
Student athletes require considerable support to be successful in their sport and in the classroom. We are excited to announce the Golden Eagle $99 or More Scholarship Initiative which will provide the funding and flexibility needed to attract and retain top-quality student-athletes, while allowing alumni and friends to be part of that success.
Under the guidance of retired wrestling coach Bob Bubb, the Double Eagle campaign generated gifts that provided increased scholarship endowments and immediate-use funds for recruiting student-athletes. If you participated in that program, thank you. Replenishing those immediate-use funds is critical to returning Clarion wrestling to its rightful place as a top 25 contender.
Our recent successes affirm that we’re on the right track.
