Margie Deane Gray,

Executive Director, FLC Foundation


Hello Everyone!


    Fall has spread across our campus like a colorful, warm quilt. Activities on campus are definitely in full swing and are being enjoyed by our internal community, as well as the local communities.


    If you haven't been on campus lately, I encourage you to come on up. You will be pleasantly surprised with the changes on campus, and I guarantee you will feel the energy that permeates the mesa.


    If you have future plans to be in our area, please let us know. We'd like to see you and show you around the campus. I know you will be proud of the direction Fort Lewis College has taken.


    Thanks always for your wonderful support of our efforts.
