$200K raised for veterans scholarships at UNO

Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - About $200,000 was raised for veterans scholarships at a Nov. 12 gala, University of New Orleans officials say. 

UNO President Peter Fos said the money will help fund 20 scholarships in the 2013-14 year tied to the EdVets scholarship program. 

About 600 people attended the gala at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The event capped off a week of activities surrounding Fos' investiture ceremony, when he was formally installed as the first president of UNO. Previous UNO leaders held the title of chancellor.
