The annual Senior Class Gift is a student-led campaign to raise money for Emory & Henry College. In years past, students have donated scholarship gifts, picnic tables, handicap accessibility improvements and much more. All terrific projects, however, this year we are asking seniors to start a tradition by supporting the area where their gift will make the greatest impact —The E&H Annual Fund.
