Engaging Minds, Transforming Lives


Image of Teresa and Haynes MorrisWelcome Message from Our Chairs

Greetings, Southwestern Parents. 

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 you and other parents at PLGC meetings. 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, Edward Burger. Yes, this is a BIG PERK!

Be on the lookout for updates and news to come from Haynes and me. We welcome your comments and suggestions.

Best Regards,

Teresa & Haynes Morris, Dallas, TX
Parents of Geoffrey, Class of 2016
