Lion Champions Fund :: Testimoni
Why We Give
“We enjoy helping young people who are working to improve them- selves both academically and physically. Athletics can mean so much to a university well beyond the student-athletes, involving the band, cheerleaders, dance squad, students, alumni, faculty, staff, and more, creating a true esprit de corps, a sense of community and yes, a PRIDE. Truth is, most people hear about a university via its athletic programs and therefore they are even more important.”
“Our family is proud to support the Thrower Student-Athlete Success Center and other Lion Champions Fund initiatives. We are so honored to impact student success through the LCF and celebrate champions in the classroom and in competition. Go Lions!”
“Ralph and I give because we know how hard the student-athletes work to put Commerce on the map! Our gifts provide a better experience for them, and will help them reach their goals and dreams. It is ALL ABOUT THE STUDENTS!”
