Seniors Donate More than $3,700 for Tech

The Arkansas Tech University Pacesetters Class of 2014 committee presented a check in the amount of $3,762.75 as the senior class gift to the Arkansas Tech Foundation on Tuesday.

The donation was the largest senior class gift in the nine-year history of the Pacesetters program.

Jayne Jones, vice president for development at Arkansas Tech (photographed, far right), accepted the check on behalf of the Arkansas Tech Foundation during a gathering at the Alumni House.

The program is designed to begin a lifetime tradition of giving back to Arkansas Tech by encouraging seniors to make their first gift to the Arkansas Tech Foundation before graduation.

The Arkansas Tech Pacesetters program was founded in 2006. Over the first nine years of the program, Arkansas Tech seniors have donated approximately $16,300 to the Arkansas Tech Foundation.

The Pacesetter committee members present for the check presentation on Tuesday were (from left) Clay Wyllia of Atkins, Barbara Braga of Olathe, Kan., Taylor Phoumivong of Fort Smith, Paige Leavell of Russellville, Caitlyn Brinegar of Camden and Linda Du of Baoding, China.
