Ketteman Student
Scholarship Drive

February 26, 2017

The Ketteman Student Scholarship Drive, named after Paul Ketteman, the first Welch College Student, is held the last Sunday of February each year. This drive raises funds for institutional scholarships that help lower the cost for each student attending Welch. From his years of work at the college, Mr. Ketteman understood better than most how costly it is to provide quality Christian education, and how important it is for churches and individuals to provide regular, generous support. More than anyone else, his work made us conscious of the need to provide a legacy for future generations.

Through your generous gifts to the Ketteman Student Scholarship Drive, Welch College can continue to change the world one student at a time.

Chick-fil-A™ Spirit Nights

Chick-fil-A will donate 20% of the sales Welch College brings to their Charlotte Pike location during the Spirit Night event (5:00-8:00 p.m.). This is a fun way for the college family, alumni, and friends to support Welch College as they enjoy a meal at Chick-fil-A.

“Spirit Night” vouchers must be presented when the order is placed for the college to receive the 20% donation. Please print as many of these sheets as you need, cut out the vouchers, and distribute them to your friends and family.

This is a win-win opportunity. Everyone gets to enjoy a Chick-fil-A meal, and Welch College receives a percentage of the proceeds.

Upcoming Spirit Nights
Check back soon for 2017 dates

Note: No one is allowed to distribute Spirit Night vouchers on any Chick-fil-A property.
