Aaron’s Donates $1 Million to Morehouse College
APRO board member and Aaron’s general Counsel Robbie Kamerschen attended Morehouse College’s 30th annual “A Candle in the Dark” scholarship fundraising gala on behalf of Aaron’s last week. The Aaron’s Foundation donated $1 million at the event which also marked the college’s 151st anniversary.
“We are humbled by the legacy of leadership, character and academia at Morehouse,” says Kamerschen. “We are glad to be here and we’re thrilled to contribute. This is about Morehouse—if we can pay for one, two or three men to put them in this room, who might not have been able to make it here otherwise, it will be an investment worth every single dollar.”
Morehouse College is located in Atlanta, Georgia and was founded in 1867. It is a private historically black liberal arts institution for men dedicated to teaching, scholarship, service and the continuing search for truth as a liberating force. The mission is to develop men with disciplined minds who will lead lives of leadership and service. The college seeks students who are willing to carry the torch of excellence and who are willing to pay the price of gaining strength and confidence by confronting adversity, mastering their fears, and achieving success by earning it.
The 30th annual fundraising event raised a total of $3.4 million for student scholarships.
