The dean’s suite of offices in the Forsyth Building has a new formal name that celebrates five generations of a family’s connections to WCU dating back to the early 1900s.
The inaugural all-in day of giving to benefit multiple areas of WCU proved to be one day to remember as 1,128 donors made gifts and pledges totaling $316,337, blowing past an original goal of 800 donors.
Challenge gifts issued so far include an anonymous donor pledging to match up to a total of $25k to help send the Pride of the Mountains Marching Band to Ireland in 2024 and a $5k dollar-for-dollar match for donations to the Speech and Hearing Clinic.
