Leave your mark!

The blazing red “Leave Your Mark” message to graduates on posters around campus this spring has been plain and simple: remember Western by stepping up with a donation toward the Senior Class Gift. The motto was the brainchild of seniors Bianca Lucchesi and David Greiner, chairs of the Class Gift effort. The Committee: Ethan Breitling, Brittany Leandra, Shanelle McCall, Jasmin Noel and Lauren Post, and Honorary Committee Members: Susan Donnelly, Matthew Donofrio, Onilda Figueroa, Amanda Forker, Blake Irving and Danielle King spearheaded Class Gift events.

At one event, seniors donated to the Class Gift and left their special mark on personally decorated cupcakes, raising $225 for the Scholarship Fund. Many thanks are extended to Cupcakes & Milkshakes of Bethel, Stop & Shop, and Big Y for making this event possible. To date, the Class of 2011 has donated more than $1,000.

Getting into the habit of giving back not only leaves a legacy, but creates a foundation for students in need of financial support.  Graduates are asked to give what they can, and a fitting $20.11 supports the scholarship fund established by prospective alumni each year, although any amount is welcomed and appreciated.
