The program offered an opportunity for Randolph-Macon to showcase it outstanding students, including Cassie Morgan ’12, and Carlie Pendleton ’13. Pendleton, who has published a collection of poetry, read At First, a poem she wrote specifically for the event. “The piece expresses the growth and development of individuality and character that is fostered at R-MC,” she said. “Randolph Macon allows us to persevere and to become exactly who we are meant to be. Thank you to the donors who help us on our way.” She then recited a scene from Hamlet in which the lead character thanks Horatio, his one true friend, for helping him and staying with him despite daunting challenges.
R-MC President Robert R. Lindgren told guests, “Tonight, again, we are reminded how the voice of one person—Cassie and Carlie in this case—can speak directly to the experience of everyone who hears her. And as this knowledge and these ideas spread, and light up the minds of those who listen, they take on a life of their own, creating new ideas and propelling our students forward together, and on their own, toward their very best.”
Lindgren said that endowing a named scholarship “creates the bridge between the most fundamental ideal of our college—developing the minds and character of young people, challenging them, and inspiring them—and the real world where that idea comes to life. You, the donors of our scholarships, in so many ways, safeguard the legacy, permanence and vitality of Randolph-Macon College, and we remain eternally grateful.”
Next year’s Scholarship Banquet will take place on April 11, 2012.
