Faculty and Staff - December 17, 2021

Dear Colleagues:

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 tomorrow! I’m looking forward to seeing you at Commencement to celebrate our 2020 and 2021 graduates. 

I want to share with you the fall Winthrop Magazine, which 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 above. If you would like a printed copy of this edition, reach out to the Office of University Communications and Marketing (ext. 2236) to pick up one. 

Thank you again for all that you do for Winthrop. I hope you and your family have a peaceful holiday season.



George W. Hynd

Interim President
