Student Resource Center Supports Success

You’ve heard it before, “Hard work is the key to success.” At Saint Luke’s College, we work hard to ensure our students’ success. When students expressed a need for enhanced support, we partnered with Dr. Howard and Nancy Aks to create the Student Resource Center (SRC).

The Aks family has provided a student scholarship which honors Howard’s parents, Dr. Daniel and Doris Aks for a number of years. But as the College developed the SRC, they provided a lead gift of $30,000 which enabled the College to obtain another matching gift.
