On June 3, 2012, Luke and Jack Pomfret decided to sell lemonade from a front yard stand with just one goal in mind: to raise funds to benefit the Dwight Schar College of Nursing & Health Sciences. The boys raised just over eight dollars that day and proudly donated the money to their cause, displaying a spirit of giving well beyond their years.
When Ashland University President Frederick J. Finks heard of the duo's passionate effort, he simply could not ignore it. Both Luke and Jack were commended at the annual Founders Dinner, a night that traditionally recognizes those who have selflessly given donations to the University. Both Luke and Jack were honored with a "Littlest Eagle" distinction that October night on campus.
As a result of their noble act, Luke and Jack have inspired Ashland University to initiate a small gift campaign called Project Lemonade. The goal of this campaign is to illustrate just how important every gift is, no matter the amount when it comes to giving back.
Please consider following these two Little Eagles and give to Ashland University. Every dollar amount is important for us as we continue our efforts. As always, we sincerely thank you for your continued support and contributions.
