In 2009, in keep- ing with his dedication to provide our students with the resources to succeed, he and his wife, Sara, established the Kevin J. and Sara G. Manning Scholarship. This endowed fund provides tuition assistance to deserving first-generation students with financial need. On June 10, Stevenson will host a gala in honor of Manning’s ser- vice and accomplishments.
