The Student Legacy Leadership Scholarship Fund got a $668 boost from Thursday’s Student Government Association “Silent Auction” in Penn’s Inn. “Things went well overall,” said Dionisios D. Tomboris, student chair for the event. “People really swarmed at the end to make last-minute bids.” SGA created the scholarship in 2006 and has worked diligently ever since to increase the fund and its annual gifts.
