We asked. You answered.
This spring, we asked you to imagine the impact we would make on students, campus and beyond when we come together to support our shared passion. On Tuesday, April 30, you rose to the 2019 True Blue Challenge. You showed just how tremendous an impact our True Blue community could make.
We are still in the process of finalizing the numbers, but thus far, more than 1,200 donors responded to the very real financial need of our students, like sophomore Skielyr Trenkle, whose choice to attend Millikin made possible by her scholarship assistance. Because of you, we raised over $465,000 to expand Millikin’s great influence on the world. Because of you, we achieved our donor goal, and received $100,000 from our anonymous donor to move Millikin boldly forward.
Simply put, on Tuesday, April 30, we made Millikin better.
Thank you for being the example to our students – for showing them that Millikin is our university. In so doing, you inspired in them a sense of ownership and loyalty that will benefit Millikin for years to come. This sense of ownership comes with pride in who we are and what we have accomplished, but even more it is borne in hope and promise as we work together to discover and perform our best imagination of what we can become.
Thank you for all you do to move Millikin forward.
Sincerely yours in Millikin,
Dr. Patrick E. White
