Etoile Filante (class of 1976)Ricks institute, Virginia, Liberia

Announcement

Etoile filante (class of 1976) will be celebrating its 40th graduation anniversary during the weekend of december 16, 2016. We will be gathering on the ricks campus to reminisce about those golden days of the ‘70s when we were at ricks. True to ricks’ motto of “not for self but for others,” the class has planned to rehabilitate the ricks science lab as part of its celebration activities; our way of giving back to ricks. The project is estimated at $10,000 and includes procurement of equipment and supplies, as well as refurbishing of the lab.

We are inviting all friends of ricks and etoile filante, including former faculty members, to participate in this worthy project by making cash or in-kind donations (click on link below for list of equipment and supplies). To make a donation, or for more information, contact:
