Hello Everyone!


   As the end of the Centennial year approaches, the members of the Fort Lewis College Foundation Board of Directors and the Foundation staff thank you for your wonderful support throughout 2011.


   It has been a year of reconnecting with many friends of the College. It has been a true honor to meet with so many interesting individuals and to hear their stories as to why they are such ardent fans of the College. The effort to reach out has been heart-warming and fulfilling for all of us.


   The Foundation is proud to be part of the continuing story of Fort Lewis's 100 years of excellence in education. Our outstanding faculty brings great depth to their teaching as they educate our future leaders. As our mission states: "Enriching educational and cultural opportunities at Fort Lewis College by encouraging and stewarding gifts for scholarships, programs and facilities-wise investments in the leaders of tomorrow." We all win because of the efforts of the entire Fort Lewis community.


   If you consider making a donation at the end of the year, I hope Fort Lewis College will be on your list of those to any level. Your contribution will continue to assist in attracting the brightest students to our campus and to help build the College for the future.

Thank you again for all you do for us.


Margie Deane Gray
