Westcott Legacy Society Luncheon—February 18, 2011
The fifth annual Westcott Legacy Society event was held at the Alumni Center Grand Ballroom and featured a program highlighting the College of Medicine and, specifically, how the late Mina Jo Powell’s planned gifts have positively impacted the College’s students and faculty. Following President Eric Barron’s welcoming remarks, guests enjoyed a Mediterranean-inspired lunch while listening to a repertoire of classical music played by pianist Andrew Focks, a senior in the College of Music.
Camille Licklider, assistant vice president of the Office of Planned Giving, introduced Dr. John Fogarty, dean of the College of Medicine, who provided an update on the College of Medicine and a brief glimpse into the College’s future. Dr. Richard Nowakowski, Randolph L. Rill Professor and Chair, and Dr. Mel Hartsfield, regional campus dean, shared the many ways in which Powell’s gifts have contributed to the success of their students and faculty. Immediately following, Ashley Lucke spoke of her experience as a student in the College of Medicine and how support from various donors has significantly aided her academic pursuits.
Prior to the luncheon, honorees had the opportunity to tour the President’s House and enjoyed a meet and greet reception in the Alumni Center Courtyard. Following the luncheon, guests were invited to the College of Medicine for a tour of the facilities, including the Clinical Learning Center, Atrium and Dean’s Conference Room.
This year, nearly 100 guests attended, including Westcott honorees, college deans, university administration and Foundation staff.
