Donors, Scholarship Students Meet at Geneva DWS Dinner
Oct. 2, 2015
Donors and scholarship students gathered together for Webster University Geneva’s annual Daniel Webster Society dinner on the premises of Richemont S.A. for the fifth consecutive year. Guests enjoyed fine wines and dining in a relaxed and enjoyable setting.
Richemont, owner of some of the world’s most prominent luxury goods maisons such as Cartier, Baume & Mercier, Piaget, Montblanc and Chloé, became donors in 2006 when they moved into their new company headquarters next door to the Webster Geneva campus in Bellevue, Switzerland.
Richemont’s donations to the scholarship program have directly benefited 33 high-achieving students who are given the opportunity to meet, and thank, their benefactor. Each student received an elegant Montblanc pen with their name engraved on it.
Four of the five students this year are also part of the Geneva Scholars Program which recognizes, supports and develops academic excellence and performance in motivated and gifted students. It provides first year and continuing scholars with opportunities to follow a challenging curriculum.
Daniel Webster Society donors are among the most loyal and committed donors to Webster University.
