Give to Radford
The College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) created a memorial scholarship to honor Donna Dunn, who for 28 years served as the advising coordinator in the Center for Advising and Licensure for the college. Donna earned her Bachelor of Science degree in 1973 and her Master of Science degree in 1990 in business education from Radford University. Donna is remembered for her contagious laugh and her kind, caring and loving heart. Her colleagues described her as an "absolute giant in the world of advising at Radford University." Please consider a gift to the Donna Dunn Memorial Scholarship. Your financial donation will assist a deserving education major from southwest Virginia and continue Donna's lasting legacy of helping Radford University students. Give online today and thank you for making a difference!
