Class of 2015 Makes Gift to Arkansas Tech

The Arkansas Tech University Pacesetters Class of 2015 committee presented a check in the amount of $2,961.05 as the senior class gift to the Arkansas Tech Foundation on Thursday, April 30. Jayne Jones, vice president for development at Arkansas Tech (photographed, middle 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 10 years of the program, Arkansas Tech seniors have donated approximately $19,300 to the Arkansas Tech Foundation. The Pacesetter committee members present for the check presentation on Tuesday were Sarah Casey of Deer (middle left) and Keenan Jumper of Wynne (far right). Casey was the top fund-raiser for the Arkansas Tech Class of 2015 gift. She was presented with a degree frame in recognition of her efforts. Alison Parks Taylor (far left) is coordinator of young alumni and student philanthropy at Arkansas Tech.
