Description

The Cecil B. Thompson Scholarship was established by Michael and Donna Dannan to recognize and honor adult reentry students returning to college after an extended absence.

This scholarship is a tribute to Cecil B. Thompson, a former CSUF economics faculty member who inspired Michael Dannan during his first college experience in the 1960s. The donor has an understanding of the rigors and challenges experienced by students returning to complete their education.
