Impact Students

Your gifts to the MUW Foundation make a direct impact on students’ lives.  During the 2017 scholarship luncheon for donors and their scholarship recipients, students shared their stories of the many ways scholarships are making a difference in their lives and their college experience.  Please enjoy the following video, "What My Scholarship Means to Me," and consider making a gift to the MUW Foundation to support our deserving students.
