Lane College hosted their fifth annual Founders’ Day Scholarship Gala on Sunday afternoon, March 3 at the J.F. Lane Health and Physical Education Building on the Lane College campus. This event serves as the college’s yearly premier fundraiser, which also celebrates the 137th year of existence and the birthday of their founder, Bishop Isaac Lane.

The event, created under the leadership of President Dr. Logan Hampton, attracted hundreds of attendees to fill the beautifully transformed gymnasium to enjoy delicious Southern-style food, music and to hear from Grammy award-winning singer Erica Campbell.

Lane College continuously upholds its mission of guiding students spiritually and academically. To learn more about Lane or schedule a campus tour, please visit
