Central Baptist College has announced the date for its 4th Annual Scholarship Gala.
The event will take place on Tuesday, March 28, at 6:00 p.m. at the Conway Expo Center.
The black-tie optional event will be a celebration of “Fearless Faith.” The proceeds from the Gala will benefit the Central Baptist College Scholarship Fund which supports all institutionally funded scholarships.
The keynote speaker for the event will be Harry Miller, an Ohio state student, who made national news when he stepped away from football at the height of his career, due to challenges he faced both on and off the field. In March of 2022, he publicly announced, "I am medically retiring from football." He cited his mental health decline and thoughts of suicide as the reason. Miller is an advocate who is self-described as "just a guy trying to help". Miller was named one of the 22 members of the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. He earned his honor for his dedication to community service and the positive impact he has made in the lives of others.
“Each year, we seem to see an increase in the number of college students who identify with some type of mental illness. The statistics of depression and anxiety among young adults and college-aged students are concerning. This year, we want to address this issue in hopes of shining a light on this epidemic” said Central Baptist College President Terry Kimbrow. “I am excited for attendees to hear the encouraging message that Harry Miller will bring.”
Event sponsorships begin at $2,000. For more information, to purchase tickets, or to make a donation to the CBC Scholarship Fund visit cbc.edu/gala or contact Amy Reed, Director of Development, at email@example.com or 501-205-8934.
