The 18th annual Indiana University Northwest Gala celebration will be held Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6 p.m. in the Avalon Manor in Hobart. Proceeds from this year’s "Born to Read Bound to Succeed" themed-Gala will support both scholarships for Indiana University Northwest students and the IU Northwest Children’s Literacy Initiative.
The gala provides an opportunity to not only honor and recognize some of northwest Indiana's brightest and hardest working students, but to show appreciation to the donor organizations and individuals that contribute to IU Northwest's scholarship programs. To help fulfill the educational needs of students, IU Northwest offers more than 100 different scholarships and awards approximately $500,000 each year.
The Children’s Literacy Initiative, a partnership between the Shared Vision
of IU Northwest and the Post Tribune, raises awareness of the value of early intervention and provide programs and resources to parents and children from birth to 6 years of age. The Initiative offers literacy education, materials and workshops to local parents/caregivers to enrich family efforts and prepare their children for the opportunities that reading will bring.
