Marshall U alumni gather for fundraiser banquet

VIENNA, WV (WTAP)--- It was an evening of fellowship for Marshall grads and supporters Thursday evening.

The tenth annual Marshall University Alumni scholarship fundraiser dinner is held at the Grand Pointe Convention Center.

Funds raised go to support scholarships for both academic and athletic at the institution of higher education.

Keynote speaker was Keith Morehouse of our sister station, WSAZ-TV SPORTS
Marshall cheers were led by our own "Mad Max"...firing up the crowd during the mealtime...and the alumni showed their pride in response.

"You know, every year we add more members to our chapter and the community support is just tremendous," explains Alumni Chapter President Laurie Martin. " We have the most corporate table sponsors that we've ever had before and nine of those sponsors are sponsoring scholarships from the funds they have paid to be a corporate table sponsor."

More than 250 alumni and guests attended Thursday evening's banquet fundraiser.
