“We picked this year’s theme to encourage the scholarship recipients and other students attending the awards banquet to continue to move forward and rise up in pursuit of academic excellence and personal objectives,”
The foundation uses this annual event to honor the next generation of college bound students and it also serves as a venue to honor a special leader through the Excellence in Leadership Award. This is one of the most celebrated events for the organization. Ms. McDaniel says, “We are excited to host this year’s Awards Banquet to celebrate the accomplishments of the Washington, D.C. metro-area’s brightest scholars and encourage their continued success throughout the future.”
Darby Baham, Executive Secretary of the Tripod Foundation, shares her enthusiasm for the event by stating, “I'm really excited about the formal afternoon brunch for our scholarship recipients, supporters, board members and volunteers. I think it's indicative of the way the board is constantly seeking to better itself and shows our commitment to the recipients, as well as to our supporters and donors throughout the years.”
This event is open to the public and all community members that are invested in honoring the next generation of leaders are encouraged to attend. Tickets to the banquet can be purchased via the foundation’s Eventbrite page (tripodawards.eventbrite.com)
