Professors honored by Annual Fund gifts and sunflowers

Some alumnae and alumni recently surprised some of their favorite professors with sunflowers, and gifts to the College, just before Valentine’s Day.

The Randolph College Annual Fund recently held a special campaign to reach out to some of the College’s younger alumnae and alumni. Staff asked them to make gifts in honor of their favorite professors, who would receive a sunflower and an acknowledgement of the graduate’s gift.

When snow threatened to impact the College on Valentine’s Day, the Annual Fund staff moved quickly to deliver the flowers early.

“We would like to extend our sincere thanks to those who supported the Annual Fund through their participation in our Valentine’s Day campaign,” said Tamera Jamerson, director of the Annual Fund. “The professors were, of course, delighted to have been honored and remembered by their former students in such a special way. Annual Fund participation is absolutely vital to our students and faculty, as it ensures that the College will continue to provide transformative educational experiences in a close-knit, caring community.”
