A Note From Home…..
I am sure you will agree. There are so many things that compete for our time, talent and resources these days. Community organizations, charities, places of worship. So many are worthy of our support. Our alma mater is one of those worthy causes. Our mission to …cultivate excellence in learning, service, and leadership through the mutual development of intellect and character to enable graduates to lead meaningful lives and have successful careers,” is more relevant today than ever.
As fellow alumni it is my responsibility, and yours, to share in the support of our alma mater. After all, It is where we discovered our passion, our lifelong friends and partners, our ability to think critically and appreciate the world through the lens of a liberal arts education. Eureka College has and continues to enrich our lives.
If you are grateful for your college friends, your launch into adulthood, your ability to stand out in your workplace and community, why not show it by making a gift right now? It is easy!  Click HERE to GIVE NOW. No gift is too small and is so greatly appreciated.
As  a little thank you in advance, I have included this  “oldie but goody” from 2012. Every time I see it, it makes me smile. I hope it makes you smile too!
