The Harrington Center gymnasium was transformed to a lovely venue for the Mount’s Four Corners of the World on April 19. Over 330 passages journeyed to the countries of Canada, India, Ireland, and Jamaica to enjoy a sumptuous feast during the annual scholarship event. Now in its 42nd year, the yearly event helps raises money for the general scholarship fund.

Local 12 personality Bob Herzog kept the guests entertained throughout the Silent and Live Auction, while Mount students assisted donors during the games of chance.

The big winners of the night were the Mount students. Scholarship recipients assisted in a variety of areas and personally thanked patrons for helping to make a Mount education a reality for them.

“Without the scholarships I receive, I would not be able to attend the Mount,” said Sean Brooks, a junior in sport management.

“The scholarship I receive really helps with the cost of tuition, and allows me the opportunity to pursue a co-op position instead of another job,” says Emma Broerman, a sophomore majoring in business administration.

Co-chairs for the event were Mount trustee Jill Meyer ’93, member in charge at Frost Brown Todd, LLC, and Lisa and Mike Habel, president and CEO of BHDP Architecture and Mount Board of Trustees member. Under their guidance, fabulous auction prizes were collected from various trustees, alumni, donors, and friends to help make the evening a success.
