With contributions from IBCF board members, staff and supporters, as well as ISBVI staff, all of the 11 graduating ISBVI seniors will receive a gift basket at the annual Senior Banquet (held the night before ISBVI graduation) that was carefully crafted for them.

Gift baskets for two ISBVI seniors are arranged on the school’s front steps. Both of the baskets are also accompanied by a suitcase and a laundry basket full of dorm supplies.Sponsors for this year’s senior gift baskets included Kelly Alexiou, Laura Alvarado, Kim Borges, Kristina Davis, Eye Surgeons of Indiana (coordinated by Cristina Brown and Stacy Ress), Patricia Foltz, Becca Hopson, Carmie Klein, Jenny Lurkins, Chris and Kelly Munoz, Kathy Nimmer, Michael and Hailey Parent, and Hannah and Jared Wilson.

On the Thursday before the annual ISBVI Senior Banquet, IBCF board members, staff and volunteers gathered at A Taste of Indiana, who graciously helped in putting the ISBVI seniors’ gift baskets together. IBCF is incredibly grateful for the longstanding partnership it has with A Taste of Indiana and the steadfast support we receive from A Taste of Indiana owner Mark Kolbus.

Congratulations to the 2023 ISBVI Senior Class!
