Fine finales and perfect progress


Dear Shocker Nation,Elizabeth King

Last year I talked about the many fundraising initiatives that were launched. This year, I’m proud to report on their successes! Staff and students have moved into the new Advanced Education in General Dentistry building on North Oliver Street and in addition to the learning that’s going on, community members are reaping the benefits of having professional-level students available to perform dental services. The Promise for the Future planned giving campaign celebrated meeting its goal of documenting 100 new legacy gifts to help secure the future of Wichita State. The Rhatigan Renewal is in full swing with completion scheduled for 2014, including the new Shirley Beggs Ballroom plus many more exciting features. The Rhatigan Student Center will truly be the renewed treasure of the campus. And, the Miró mosaic has been removed and is being prepared for re-installation in 2016.

In this extended issue of the Fall Horizon, we are pleased to acknowledge the loyal donors who have joined other representatives of the Fairmount Society and the President’s Club during fiscal year 2012, which ran from July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012. Coming later this fall, all members entering our giving clubs during fiscal year 2012 will be recognized in the WSU Foundation annual report, which will be found on our website at Look for an email announcing its arrival. Thank you for each and every gift you’ve made to ensure a quality education for everyone at Wichita State.

It is so rewarding to stop and celebrate the many achievements you have helped us obtain. But it is difficult to linger because of our excitement as we look forward to the vision of and new opportunities with WSU President Bardo. Please join us as we continue to have an impact on today and make a difference in the future.

 With Shocker pride,
