Great news! We’re halfway through our annual fund campaign, and so far our alumni have pledged $1,337 in gifts to the Honors College, which represents about half of this year’s $3,000 fundraising goal.
Thanks go out to Jessica Neno Cloud, pictured at left, the development officer in the USM Foundation who is doing the heavy lifting of coordinating the campaign. Jessica has brought considerable enthusiasm to this year’s drive, given that she is herself an Honors College graduate. (She received a B.A. in American studies in 2003.) Before joining the Foundation, she was a program manager in the Office of Annual Giving at the University of South Carolina. We’re delighted to have her help!
We’re pleased also at the response to the campaign. Thanks to those who’ve pledged so far, and I hope I’m not pushing my luck to ask those of you who haven’t pledged yet to consider either returning your card with a gift or to make one through the foundation web site at http://www.usmfoundation.com/
