As part of the 100th anniversary, we have set a goal of seeing 800 students walk across the stage during Commencement (this is double our normal participation). We need your help to accomplish this goal.
In the past, students have told us the cost of the cap and gown kept them from walking. We would like to remove this barrier for our students by kicking off a new gown recycling program. To get started and keep in theme with our 100-year Anniversary, we are hoping to collect 100 caps and gowns. The cost per set is $31 and we are asking you to consider sponsoring a graduate (or 2 or 10) by contacting the Foundation Office today at 234-3939. This can easily be handled by sending in a check or calling with a credit card number.
The gowns that are purchased through the recycling program will be collected after commencement to be used again by students for years to come. Please help us reward our students who have to sacrifice so much to attend college. It would be a shame for them not to celebrate this great accomplishment.
Thank you in advance for your support. If you have any questions about this program or how to make your donation, please contact Stacey Bush at x3739 or Sara Dorer at x3924.
