Chancellor's Dinner

2010 Chancellor’s Dinner

Friends of UCR Come Together at Chancellor’s Dinner to Support Merit Scholarships

On October 23, 2010 the second annual Chancellor’s Dinner to Benefit UCR Students took place at the Highlander Union Building, hosted by Chancellor Timothy P. White, the UCR Alumni Association and the UCR Foundation. Nearly 300 guests arrived to the sound of the UCR Carillon and enjoyed wine and hors d'oeuvres during a pre-dinner reception on the HUB patio. The reception featured a variety of student performers, including Orkes Pantai Barat  by the UCR Keroncong Ensemble, Premalatha Thiagarajan, a Ph.D student in critical dance studies performing the Barata Natyam, UCR Ballet Folklórico, and concluding with the UCR Pipe Band.

The dinner program began with sophomore theatre major Alexandra Franke performing “The Wizard and I” from Wicked. Chancellor Timothy P. White then spoke to the crowd, emphasizing the importance of scholarships and how they assist students to live the promise of higher education.

Following dinner, the Alumni Awards of Distinction were presented. Robert Del Grande ’81, Ph.D. received the Distinguished Alumnus Award, Rickerby Hinds ’94 the Alumni Service Award and André Quintero ’96 the Outstanding Young Alumnus Award. The final recognition of the evening went to Arthur and Peggy Littleworth, as they received the UCR Medallion in recognition of their extraordinary service, dedication and generosity to education at UCR.

The evening concluded with White making a presentation on the Preserving Access to Higher Education, and Franke sent the visitors home smiling with a stirring rendition of the alma mater, “Hail Fair UCR.”
