The campaign quickly exceeded all expectations. At the Green & Gold Gala in February, University President Alexander Gonzalez announced that more than $150,000 had been raised.
The awarding of the first Troops to College scholarships this fall will boost Sac State’s leadership in attracting veterans, Weston says.
Sihoe attended the Gala and was moved by the response. “We’re getting donations now from people outside the campus who don’t even know us,” he says.
I've written before (1 2 3 4) about this program, and about the people who administer it. Our veterans are in good hands at Sac State.
