RESOLUTION TO HONOR GLENDA PITTMAN OWENS FOR
MERITORIOUS SERVICE ON THE WINTHROP UNIVERSITY
BOARD OF TRUSTEES

WHEREAS, Winthrop University with grateful appreciation, does hereby acknowledge, commend and honor the nine years of distinguished service of Glenda Pittman Owens as a member of the Winthrop University Board of Trustees; and

 WHEREAS, she began her commitment to Winthrop University and its tradition of outstanding service by giving freely of her time and talents by serving as president of Bancroft Hall during her junior year of college and later as a reunion gift chair, a leader in the Charleston Alumni Club, a member of the Winthrop Foundation Board, President of the Alumni Association and was elected by the S.C. General Assembly in 2000 to a seat on Winthrop’s Board of Trustees where she held the positions of Chair of the University Relations Committee and Secretary of the Board.

WHEREAS, as major philanthropic donors to Winthrop, Glenda and her family have been exemplary role models by sending a clear message and setting a powerful example for others to follow by their contributions to the Lasting Achievement capital campaign, their continuing involvement with the Annual Fund, and their unrelenting support for Winthrop by often being the first to give whenever a need was identified.

Therefore let it be resolved that the Trustees, the President, and the Winthrop University faculty, staff and students do hereby convey their deep respect and profound gratitude to Glenda Pittman Owens, and do commend her for a lifetime of outstanding meritorious service to Winthrop University.

 

Approved this 27th day of February 2009.
