William Jessup University will host the Jessup Gala beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. The gala event raises funds for student scholarships.

The Jessup Gala will feature the university’s specific vision as a Christ-centered university, as the themes of innovation, inspiration and impact highlight Jessup’s effect in the region and beyond.

The evening program also features Jessup’s president, Dr. John Jackson, as he discusses his vision for the growing university and delivers an interactive “State of the University Address.”

The gala will include live music, featured WJU faculty, student stories of transformation and the announcement of future academic programs.

Jenny Williamson, founder of Courage 2BU, an international organization that rescues girls from the life of sex trafficking, will also be honored.
