This year's Annual Fund has raised $1,115,000 as of March 10, 1998, and has a goal of $1,890,000 by the end of the fiscal year on June 30. An important component of Reed's operating budget, it enhances the college's ability to offer a demanding, traditional curriculum to its students in small conference-style classes. It ensures that a Reed education remains accessible to talented students from all backgrounds. Please call the Annual Fund office for more information at 503/777-7573.

Scrivens, who was inducted into the Oregon Hall of Fame in 1986, has been coaching the Reed College squash team for 37 years; in the past 10 years, the Reed team has been league champions four times. In the late 1960s, he founded the city of Portland squash league, where Reed still plays. Scrivens is an accomplished athlete. Originally a basketball player, he rose to prominence as one of the nation's top handball players, winning the National Handball Singles Championships in 1975 and 1976. He was named a member of the U.S. team that played Canada in 1974. His numerous awards include the Jimmy Richardson Award from the Old Time Athletes Association as Oregon's top amateur male athlete, the Cebula Award from the Multnomah Athletic Club as its top handball player, and the Multnomah Athletic Club President's Award, which recognizes Scrivens for his exceptional contribution to athletics, especially on the youth level.
