The 2012 Tech Loyalty Fund Class Gift Committee is beginning to prepare for the campaign they hope will produce the largest class gift in the history of the committee.
The group has chosen a theme that will represent Tech memories of graduating seniors and graduate students: “Remembering Your Roots…Branching Out.”
The committee, comprised of eight undergraduates and three graduate students, is asking their peers to make a gift to Tech in the amount of $20.12, which can be given specifically to any area of the campus or Tech’s greatest need.
“Our purpose is to share with other students the importance of giving back. Without the gifts of others before me, the experiences I had as a graduate and undergraduate student would not have been possible. Now, I want to make sure those who follow have the same opportunities,” said Savanna Knight, co-chair of the committee.
Starting in the spring semester, the Class Gift Committee members will spend time in several academic buildings and other locations on campus to share information with other students about the Tech Loyalty Fund, Arkansas Tech’s annual giving program.
"The Tech Loyalty Fund means a great deal to this university. Our students benefit from the Tech Loyalty Fund on a daily basis, and those private dollars give our faculty members the tools they need to help our students succeed,” said Jayne Jones, vice president for development at Arkansas Tech.
