Thursday, June 24, 2021

"I love to invest! Whether it is financial or personal, I love investing in Westminster College. I love investing my time with alumni, the current students, employees and faculty to gain insight on what is going on in and around campus.  I learn of needs of the students and faculty. From the knowledge that I gain with that investment, I then love to make a financial investment and commitment to Westminster College. That investment helps in many ways, whether the investment goes toward scholarship funds, athletics, music or other fundraising activities that may be going on at the time.
