Hundreds of PUC students received thousands of dollars in scholarship funds at PUC’s annual Awards Colloquy, May 13. These scholarships included a remarkable gift from a pair of very recent graduates.
Dan and Navi Ganancial, a brother and sister who graduated in ’05 and ’07 respectively, became the youngest scholarship founders in PUC history with their establishment of the Ganancial Family Scholarship. This fund rewards students who hold a GPA of at least 3.25 in the fields of communication, public relations/journalism, music, or business, and have been at PUC for at least two years.
“Ever since we graduated, Dan and I have been looking for a chance to give back to PUC,” said Navi. Read about her in the November 2009 E-post.
“It’s inspiring to see young alumni like Dan and Navi using their resources to make a difference in other young people’s lives,” says Pam Sadler, vice president for advancement. “Most of us wait until a point in our lives when we’re well established, but these two have made giving back to a cause they believe in a priority.”
Divya Joseph was the first recipient of the Ganancial Family Scholarship. She is a senior public relations/journalism major, and was elected by the Student Association as next year’s Campus Chronicle editor-in-chief.
