CALEXICO — San Diego State University-Imperial Valley campus has announced the annual scholarship fund-raising gala will be Feb. 9 at the Calexico Community Center.
"The event is a major effort on behalf of the campus to reach out to the constituency groups in the Imperial Valley to obtain much-needed scholarship dollars for our students," said event chairman Carlos Herrera.
A special effort is under way to reach alumni and educators residing in the local area.
Past events, always staged in the early part of the year, have been conducted in different cities to reach out to the entire Imperial Valley for purposes of achieving fund-raising goals for student scholarships.
"Through the generosity of Imperial Valley residents, our scholarship endowment has grown tremendously within the past three years," SDSU-IV Dean Khosrow Fatemi said.
