In the March e-newsletter we reported that President Pfeiffer and the Board of Trustees had made the decision to decommission and raze Carson Hall because of the need for extensive repairs and renovations.
As Carson was coming down this month, Danny Starnes ’59 shared this story.
The College was selected as a member of the 2010 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. This award, launched in 2006, annually recognizes institutions of higher education for their commitment to and achievement in community service. The President’s Honor Roll increases the public’s awareness of the contributions that colleges and their students make to local communities and the nation as a whole. Honorees are chosen based on a series of selection factors including scope and innovation of service projects, percentage of student participation in service activities, incentives for service and the extent to which the school offers academic service-learning courses.
Consider making a gift to the WWC Fund before the end of our fiscal year on June 30. Doing so will help us continue to provide the unique learning Triad of academics, work and service to our students — 80% of them need financial assistance in order to attend. You, along with many other loyal supporters, keep our educational philosophy powerful and relevant. When you support the College, you are helping to create compassionate, innovative thinkers of tomorrow. Thank you for your commitment to our College, your past contributions and what you will do in the future.
