The Alexandria Technical and Community College Foundation (ATCCF) held its annual fundraising luncheon Friday, April 25.

Foundation President Jon Hall welcomed guests, who filled the ATCC law enforcement center to capacity. Students Aimee Harren and Austin Christensen talked about how foundation scholarships helped them reach their educational goals.

Messages were also given by ATCC president Kevin Kopischke, past president Frank Starke, president-elect Laura Urban and foundation director Kathy Pfeffer Nohre.

Kopischke, who will retire June 30, was honored for his 10 years of service as president. Urban will begin her duties July 1. The ATCCF was established in 1971 as the fundraising arm of the college.
