The scholarships each year are funded by a joint effort between ESU Facilities and the university’s Classified Assembly. Held each spring, the fundraiser includes drawings for prizes donated by area businesses and ESU business partners, cash donations and a hot dog feed.

Another $2,125 in cash donations came from businesses and business partners of ESU Facilities. The hot dog feed on April 29, sponsored by Country Mart North, Emporia’s Hostess Brands, Sodexo and ESU Foundation, raised $368 for a total of $6264.
