Class of 2016 Scholarship
Dear Alumni and Friends, Thank you for making the start of our IMPACT Campaign so successful! To date, we have received over $6.4 million in commitments and have created 55 new scholarships since May 2015! Additionally, we have added much needed support to our ASSIST Fund, a fund that has helped over 150 students since its inception. As a reminder, our goal for this campaign is to raise $10 million and create 200 new scholarships. Gifts toward the campaign can be made through contributed scholarships (annual gifts), creating an endowed scholarship (pledges/gifts of $25,000 or more) or newly documented estate gifts designated for scholarships (bequests, life insurance, trusts, etc.). My colleagues and I continue to be inspired by the loyalty and support of our alumni and friends. If you have not supported the campaign yet, there is still time to make an IMPACT! In April, we said goodbye to former vice president for development and alumni director Ronald L. Reeves ’64, who had been courageously batting cancer. Ron made a tremendous impact on everyone he met, both at Adrian College and in our greater community. I had the honor of working with Ron for many years at the College. A memorial scholarship has been created to honor the life of Ron and all that he did for Adrian College. Please see the story to the right for more information. In October, we welcomed a new staff member, but a familiar face, to the Office of Development — Delaney Andrews ’13. She will be our assistant director of annual giving and has already contributed immensely to our annual giving programs. If you have not been back to campus in a while, please feel free to reach out to me as I would enjoy the opportunity to give you a tour of all our exciting additions to campus. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (517) 264-3168. Thank you again for all that you do for our great College and our wonderful students! Go Bulldogs!

Two Adrian College classes, separated by 50 years, have made a commitment to help future Bulldogs through their class scholarships. Donna Lindberg ’66 said, “I consider my time at Adrian College very special. I formed lasting friendships, received a quality education and grew in body, mind and spirit. When the IMPACT Campaign was initiated, I thought, ‘Wow! What a great way to pay it forward and enable others to benefit from an Adrian College education!’” Similarly, Adrian’s newest class to join the alumni ranks, 2016, is working toward the same goal: raise $25,000 to begin an endowed scholarship. “We want to be change agents and have a positive effect on the future. By working together, we can make a big difference one dollar at a time,” said former class president Nichole Laflamme ’16. If your class would like to create its own scholarship to assist future generations of Bulldogs, please contact the Office of Development at (517) 264-3168.
