Loyalty Fund Makes a Difference for Outstanding Students

 Lila Buchanan
Lila Buchanan knows the value of Western as a Cullowhee native, Catamount alumna and WCU employee for nearly 30 years. That’s why Buchanan, an administrative officer in the development office, gives to the Loyalty Fund and encourages others to join her.

The Loyalty Fund not only supports the Honors College, recruitment, student achievement awards banquets, the University Scholar Award, the Outstanding Support Staff Award, the Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Award and alumni activities, but also fuels merit-based scholarships for more than 100 students every year.

"It feels good to know my contribution was part of scholarships that make Western more affordable for outstanding students,” Buchanan said.

Now meet Kelisa Underwood, a student who's benefitting from Loyalty Fund-supported scholarships
