As reported in the Spring 2012 Bulletin, “there will be a Western College Endowed Professor”! With a matching grant of $100,000 from Miami, the WCAA goal of $400,000 was met and exceeded by the December 31, 2011, deadline. The Board of Trustees celebrated at the April 2012 board meeting by presenting a giant check to Miami, accepted on behalf of the university by Dr. Carla Pestana, Chair of the History Department and the W.E. Smith Professor of History.  WCAA President Jocelyn Woodson-Reed and Campaign Chair Doris Ning Wong did the honors, and Jocelyn re-enacted the presentation for the appreciation of an even larger audience at Alumnae Weekend.

During Alumnae Weekend, this report from the Scholarship Committee was especially well received: For the 2012-13 academic year, the WCAA awarded 152 scholarships in the amount of $283, 252. Since its incorporation in 1974, more than $2.5 million in scholarships have been awarded!

With the date 2024 (50th anniversary of ’74, the last class to graduate from Western College) as its goal, the Board’s Legacy Committee is working diligently to develop appropriate ways to establish the Western story for future generations. Discussion will be a top priority at the October 18-20 Board meetings.
