'HA Honorary Alum


Tom and Alice Sparks felt it was important to make a planned gift to ensure that students who wanted a Delaware Valley University education could attend and benefit from the growth and expansion in recent years. “I've seen some wonderful changes at DelVal,” Alice explains, “as far as their enrollment increasing and achieving university status. A lot is because of their success in building the endowment. Not only is it important for the students, but also it benefits the community.”
