Vincent Chau (left) and Evan Ross were among a group of more than 30 students who gathered recently to staff a phone bank during the 2011 Annual Alumni Fund campaign. In the course of a 12-hour effort, the volunteers reached out to more than 7,000 alumni and collected more than $35,000. The phone bank was just one component of the campaign, which raised in excess of $340,000. Those funds are used for scholarships and student activities that are outside state support. Mr. Chau is a student in the M.D./Ph.D. program, a Cornell University graduate from Toronto; Mr. Ross is a second-year medical student and Rice University graduate from Lake Travis.
