What a week at Ave Maria!
We had our annual scholarship dinner last Thursday and it was a huge success! Four hundred people crowded into the ballroom of the Ritz Carlton on Naples beach and the dinner probably was our best yet. Fittingly enough for our tenth anniversary as a University, Ave Maria conferred an honorary doctorate on our founder, Tom Monaghan. It came as a complete surprise to him and we were thrilled that his wife of 51 years, Marge, was there by his side as Chairman of the Board of Trustees Michael Timmis hooded Tom. The photo below says it all.
