Description

Monday was a day of lasts for departing University of Delaware President Patrick Harker. During a morning event at the Perkins Student Center on UD's campus, Harker presided over his last press conference, posed for his last photo op, and helped announce the last major gift of his tenure--a $3 million donation designed to help low income students finish college. The money comes courtesy of Bob Carr, chairman and CEO of a payment processing company and founder of the Give Something Back Foundation. Carr's donation will help 150 low income Delawareans graduate from the state's flagship university debt-free.
