Subject: Pell Grant 40th Anniversary SFARN dinner and conference

I am pleased to extend a dinner invitation to TASFAA members on behalf of The Pell Institute (www.PellInstitute.org), a DC based organization that advocates to improve the educational opportunities and outcomes for low-income, first-generation, and disabled students. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Pell Grant, and The Pell Institute will commemorate this event at its annual SFARN (Student Financial Aid Research Network) conference with a dinner on Wednesday, June 13 (6:30pm-8:30pm) at the Westin Memphis Beale Street Hotel. The dinner will feature remarks from Clay Pell, IV, the late Senator Claiborne Pell’s grandson; Deborah Northcross, Executive Director, Southeastern Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel (SAEOPP); and Jamie Merisotis, President of Lumina Foundation.

I have been given the two attachments with additional information to share with TASFAA. If you have any questions about the dinner, please contact Lennox Alfred at lennox.alfred@pellinstitute.org.

It is with hope that you would be so kind as to share this invitation with the TASFAA members who might be interested in attending.

Kind regards,

Gigi
