Welcome Message from Our Chairs
Greetings, Southwestern Parents.
Welcome to Southwestern’s 2013-2014 academic year!
Your family has joined a remarkable community—one that promotes a passion for intellectual and personal growth—including academics, athletics, the arts, civic engagement, and social activities. Being a Pirate parent is just the beginning of a relationship that will last a lifetime. We are all very blessed to share in the richness of the Southwestern Experience.
We are honored to have been chosen as chairpersons of Southwestern’s inaugural Parent Leadership Gift Council (PLGC), and we are eager to engage with other parents to help further the vision of the University. Thank you for considering joining us in supporting Southwestern with your time, talents and financial gifts. We look forward to welcoming you into the PLGC, and to engaging with other parents at the PLGC meetings to be held this academic year. Some of the benefits of participation in this group include learning about the latest University events from faculty, staff and students, and hearing directly from Southwestern’s illustrious President, Dr. Edward Burger. Yes, this is a BIG PERK!
If you choose to be a part of the PLGC, be sure to save November 1 and February 28 - March 1 for meetings. We hope to have all PLGC members at the first meeting to kick off the council in a big way! Also, be on the lookout for updates and news to come from Haynes and I. We welcome your comments and suggestions.
