The 2018 Achievement Day Dinner and Celebration was an evening to remember. The event was a success thanks to our circle of supporters who assist in providing the financial support needed to make a Jewell education possible for our finest students. Each year, this dinner allows Jewell to honor our distinguished alumni while celebrating the many connections the College enjoys with the Kansas City community.

As we reflect on our week of celebration, we invite you to watch the video presented at Achievement Day. See what Kansas City business leaders have to say about the value of William Jewell in advancing the community.
