University of Montevallo young alumni increase scholarship

MONTEVALLO–When the University of Montevallo Alumni Association Junior Board of Directors held their recent Spring Soirée and Silent Auction at Good People Brewing Company in Birmingham, it resulted in a big win for the UM Young Alumni Scholarship Fund.

The taproom manager at Good People, UM alumnus Joel Harris, welcomed the Soirée with a pledge to donate $1 to the scholarship fund for each “adult beverage” purchased during the event. The actual total reached $473, but Harris rounded up the figure to an even $500. These funds, along with the proceeds from the silent auction, brought the scholarship near the endowment goal.

The Spring Soirée and Silent Auction, one of several events held annually to encourage young alumni to stay connected with their alma mater, was well attended by alumni and friends of the university.
