The Phoenix Union Foundation for Education’s 10th Annual Scholarship Dinner Friday, February 23 at the Phoenix Art Museum, is another sell-out. This year’s theme is the Art of Education-Learning Neve Goes Out of Style, highlighted by a student-run fashion show. Students have designed the fashions, will model them on the runway and provide the commentary and music for the show. There will be other student entertainment and a silent auction. The Foundation will honor the Alumnus of the Year- Chris Wooley (Maryvale 1981) an award-winning video producer, director and writer; Counselor of the Year-Terry Haggerty of Bioscience and Friends of Phoenix Union- Christine and Daryl Burton of the Burton Family Foundation. West High alumnus and longtime Valley sportscaster Kevin McCabe will emcee the festivities. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Arizona is the major sponsor.
