Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft was the guest speaker for the seventh annual William Carey University scholarship dinner held Sept. 12 at Southern Oaks House and Gardens. In addition to Ashcroft’s speech, the dinner included music performed by the Carey Chorale, a student testimonial by Branden Lindsay, and scholarship presentations. With 370 people in attendance, the dinner raised $155,000 to be awarded as scholarships for Carey students. In addition to the scholarship donations, John Hairston of Hancock Bank and Joe Canizaro, developer of the Tradition community, each contributed $125,000 to the WCU School of Pharmacy at the Tradition campus in Biloxi. 
 
“The event sold out back in the summer with no publicity,” said Dr. Angela Houston, associate vice president for university enhancement. “Everyone was very excited to see and hear former Attorney General John Ashcroft, and, more importantly, everyone is remaining loyal to William Carey University; we have come back Carey Strong!”
