Donnelly College was founded in 1949 to meet the needs of urban immigrants and the working class, with a special focus on students who would not otherwise be able to attend college. Donnelly continues to transform the lives of not only the students, but their families and future generations. That’s why, when they asked us to put together a video for their annual Scholarship Dinner to honor Henry Bloch, it was a no-brainer. The dinner was attended by nearly 600 Kansas Citians and was successful in honoring Mr. Bloch, the founder of the Henry W. Bloch Scholars program, as well as raising scholarship money to fund their mission. In the video we created for the dinner, we showcased several of the amazing stories from the Bloch Scholars and heard how their lives were changed by the education they were able to receive because of the funding. We also had the honor of interviewing Mr. Bloch himself! Fun fact: H&R Block prepares 1 in every 7 U.S. tax returns. And for those of us less familiar with the workings of the tax world, that’s a lot.
All that to say, thank you Donnelly College for letting us be a part of your event!
