Tusculum College has announced the committee members for this year’s Pioneer Club Campaign, according to 2010-2011 Pioneer Club Campaign Chairman Larry Coughlin.
Named to this year’s committee are Bill Henry, Mark Easterly, Thom Wood, a 1989 alumnus; Ken Earl, a 1998 and 2000 alumnus; Tom Smith and James Smith. All have been and are currently members of the college’s Pioneer Club.
The newly formed committee will work with Coughlin to support the Pioneer Club student-athletes and to support the efforts of the campaign. They will promote and attend special Pioneer Club events and will seek to encourage others in the community to support the program and the student-athletes at Tusculum College.
According to Coughlin, the committee members were selected based on their previous service and relationships with Tusculum.
The Pioneer Club is the college’s vehicle to provide athletic scholarships and program support to all athletic programs. The program began in 1991, and with the help and support of friends of the college, each year the goals have been met in both membership and dollars raised.
The goals for the 2010-2011 campaign are 375 members and $100,000. Members of the Pioneer Club are invited to tailgates, hospitality suites or other special events prior to selected home games, matches or tournaments. Depending on giving level, members may also receive discounts at the Tusculum College Bookstore, game passes and public address announcement recognition during games.
