An Evening with Freedoms Foundation 

Monday, April 15, 2019

 

Save the date for the fourth annual An Evening with Freedoms Foundation, held on our Valley Forge campus, to raise scholarship money for the 440 teachers expected to attend our nine summer graduate programs in 2019. The celebration includes cocktails, dinner and a silent auction.

Among this year’s honored guests for the gala is Alan B. Miller, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Universal Health Services (UHS). UHS, a Fortune 500 company, is one of the largest hospital management companies in the nation, owning and operating more than 350 facilities in 37 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom.

Mr. Miller has received numerous awards for his business and charitable activities. He was named Entrepreneur of the Year in 1991 and Financial World named him CEO of the Year in hospital management. Modern Healthcare named him one of the “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare” for the years 2003-2017.

Among the awards presented to Mr. Miller by his alma mater, the College of William and Mary, is the William and Mary Alumni Medallion, the college’s highest alumni award, in 1999. The college’s School of Business relocated to the newly constructed Alan B. Miller Hall in 2009, and the Alan B. Miller Entrepreneurship Center opened in 2010. Mr. Wharton earned his MBA degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Every dollar raised at this year’s An Evening with Freedoms Foundation will help support teachers attending these summer graduate programs in 2019: Virginia Presidents and Their Families; Revolution and Rebellion, 1756-1794; The 19th Amendment; Abraham Lincoln’s Constitution; Innovative Entrepreneurs, Dynamic Economy; and four Medal of Honor Legacy programs on Vietnam, World War II, the Cold War and the War on Terror.
