Alumni & Friends - December 17, 2021

Dear Friends:

It is hard to believe that we are wrapping up 2021 and that 2022 is just around the corner! We are finishing a successful fall semester, and December Commencement is Saturday!

As you may have already seen via a printed edition that arrived at your home, the fall Winthrop Magazine contains several compelling stories and profiles that may interest you.

I encourage you to read about:

  • The Fountain Restoration Project, which is underway to raise funds to replace the iconic front-campus fountain that holds many memories for our alumni and campus community;
  • The unique Scout projects that provide beauty and functionality to on-campus spaces;
  • Important initiatives from the Department of Human Nutrition to address food insecurity and the availability of fresh food in our local community;
  • The recent passing of two notable women – Louise Pettus ’43 and Anne Springs Close – who personified generosity through their gifts of time, service and resources to make Winthrop a better place; and
  • The latest campus news, alumni news and university advancement updates.

I encourage you to explore the magazine by clicking on the link or graphic above. Please share the magazine with anyone who may be interested in all that is happening at Winthrop.

Thank you for being a part of the Winthrop family. I hope you and your family have a peaceful holiday season.
