The Class of 2010 has begun looking toward life after Tusculum College and is making plans to leave a mark on campus before their time here comes to an end. A tradition at the college, this year’s senior class is currently raising funds to leave a permanent improvement on campus in recognition of their time at Tusculum College.
This year’s class is working to purchase a new banner for Niswonger Commons that will proudly display the College’s Alma Mater. The banner will be placed above the entrance of the Pioneer Perk for all future Pioneers to see. The goal of the campaign is $500, and several donations have already been made.
In addition to the students, all faculty, staff, parents and friends of the College are encouraged to participate by making a contribution to the 2010 Senior Class Gift campaign. All seniors are being asked to make a gift - in any amount - in honor of a professor, administrator, friend or parent who has had a positive impact during their college career.
The campaign is being led by members of the Senior Class Gift Campaign Committee which identified the project as a gift they would like to complete and leave as a legacy for future Tusculum College students.
“By participating, it’s a way to bring back tradition at Tusculum College and leave our mark as a graduating class,” said Ashley Shoults, chair of the Senior Gift Committee. Shoults, who graduates in May, is a political science major from Newark, Ohio.
“It doesn’t matter how much the gift is, we really just want everyone to participate,” Shoults added.
There is also still time to participate and support the project. If you are interested in participating in the Senior Gift Campaign, contact Shoults at firstname.lastname@example.org or
