This very generous gift will create a scholarship endowment for students at LDS Business College. “It’s difficult to overstate the future impact of the Jensen’s generous gift,” said LDS Business College President Bruce C. Kusch. “Many students each year will be able to complete their studies thanks to the creation of the Jensen scholarship endowment. Their donation will bless students’ lives for generations to come. It will give students in need the opportunity to finish their education as well as the ability to enter the workforce with the confidence and skills needed. We are grateful for this gift that will bless so many.”
In recognition of the endowment, President Kusch hosted a special event to honor the extended members of the Jensen family at LDS Business College. A highlight of the event was when a few students spoke about the personal impact receiving scholarships has had on their lives. Before that, a video allowing a few other students to share their gratitude for scholarships was shown for the first time. Afterwards, the BC Voices choir performed a few inspirational numbers and family members were led on guided tours of the college. The event concluded with a dinner hosted by President Kusch and his wife, Alynda.
As a result of the Jensen family gift, the College has designated a new space that will honor those who have given so generously to LDS Business College. A commissioned portrait of Richard C. and VaLeen S. Jensen will be the first to be displayed in this area.
