Faculty and Staff Rose to the Occasion!



Thank you to all who joined us for the Fall Harvest and Hot Air Balloon event on Monday, October 28. With President Jo Allen helping to crew the hot air balloon, we welcomed more than 100 faculty, staff, and family members for seasonal refreshments and tethered balloon rides on the front field of campus.  Last year, the College reached its goal of 50% faculty and staff giving participation, and this year even more members of faculty and staff have made their gifts to The Meredith Fund. The event celebrated the success of Meredith employee giving, and each donor was given a ticket for a complimentary hot air balloon ride.

“It was a lot of fun, and I don't think I would have ever gone in a hot air balloon otherwise!”
Leslie Maxwell, ’01
English Department

“It was really enjoyable to get to celebrate the College in such a fun way.”
Jeannie Morelock, ’95 MBA
Office of the President

We are very thankful for the commitment and generosity of our faculty and staff. A gift of any amount helps to build our participation percentage. When awarding grants and other funds, corporations and foundations use employee giving participation to measure our success as a College.

We enjoyed seeing you there and sharing this special occasion with you!
