EPHRAIM —This project is much more than building a new library.
It is the creation of a place on our Ephraim campus
that promises to inspire. Our students do not know that
Snow College is the oldest two-year college west of the
Mississippi. They do not know of the men and women who
built it in this desert. They do not know that its history is
singular and speaks of trial and triumph, repeated over and
over again. And our students do not know of the host of
people who dream for their success, as a student and in life,
and contribute generously to help them.
With the construction of the new Snow College Library and Heritage Plaza this will change.
The plaza is surrounded by a beautifully landscaped and raked, oval granite wall on which is engraven a sea of names. They are the names of men and women who, over the years, have donated to our scholarship fund the equivalent of one year’s tuition and fees or greater. You are taken by the number of names. You are reminded that a scholarships does not fall out of the sky but is money earned and donated by a person who wants you to be successful, and was willing to do more than hope, was willing to help.
