RMC Hosts their 27th Annual Black Tie Blue Jeans Scholarship Benefit

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Many people gathered on the campus of Rocky Mountain College Friday evening for the 27th Annual Black Tie Blue Jeans Scholarship Benefit.

Folks came out for the scholarship benefit to ensure students wanting to pursue higher education will have that opportunity, regardless of their financial situation.

Kira Fercho is a local artist in Billings. She said she owes everything to scholarships because without them, she wouldn't be where she is today. That's also the reason why she's giving back, by donating one of her paintings to be auctioned off at the benefit.

Rocky Mountain Student Jake Gosman said Black Tie Blue Jeans is paramount for the students of RMC because many of them receive scholarships. Gosman said it's the only way he, along with many of his peers, could continue their education.

Dr. Bob Wilmouth, RMC President, said there's no better gift than higher education, so no matter how much money is raised, many people will benefit.
