With May commencement right around the corner the Tusculum College Class of 2011 is seeking to rise to the challenge and leave their mark on the Tusculum campus. The 2011 Senior Class Gift Campaign, led by Co-Chairs Marci Moore ‘11 and Nikki Taylor ‘11 are working to recruit seniors to participate in their Senior Class Gift Campaign.
This year the seniors will be working toward raising funds for the refurbishing of the Tusculum entrance signs located on Shiloh Road and Gilland Street. The entrance signs which have greeted faculty, staff, alumni, students and friends of the College since 1968, has more than 40 years of exposure to the elements which has taken its toll on the signs. The campaign will strive to raise funds to update the lettering and give the sign a modern appearance.
The 2011 Senior Class Gift Campaign is also an introduction to a new way for students to participate in the senior gift. Thanks to GreenBank, all participating seniors will receive a piggy bank in which to collect donations for the campaign. This will be followed by four Piggy Round-Ups were the seniors can come and empty their piggies to help meet their goal. The Senior Class Gift Campaign is scheduled to kick-off on Wednesday, January 26, and Thursday, January 27, from 11 a.m. until 12:30 and at 4:30 p.m. until 6 p.m. in front of the Student Affairs Office located in the Scott M. Niswonger Commons on the Greeneville campus.
The first 50 seniors at each kick-off event who sign up to participate will receive a free BBQ Dog from Pal’s Sudden Service. Seniors and others wishing to support the campaign can still participate by calling the Office of Institutional Advancement at 423-636-7303 to make a credit or debit card gift over the phone or by sending a check to Tusculum College, P.O. Box 5040, Greeneville, TN 37743 or they may give online at https://www.tusculum.edu/giving/gift.php.
