Props to Class of 1997 for Starting a Movement!

February 25, 2018

Dear Class of 1997 Cockrum Fellowship Challenge Donors!

It's been a 100 days since our crowdfunding challenge ended. With our class’ help, the Cockrum Fellowships campaign now has over 150+ donors who have made gifts towards the fellowships and in honor of Professor Cockrum. The committee is tremendously grateful for your founding gifts to the campaign that have given our school the momentum to continue fundraising past the $5 million goal. Anderson is so confident that the campaign goal will be reached soon that the school plans to award the first fellowships next school year!

 

Anderson celebrated Professor Bill’s 80th birthday and 34+ years with Anderson in early November. Here is a short video of the event, where Dean Olian, Al Osborne, and many of Bill’s friends and family had kind words to say about the impact he has made on students and alumni throughout the years. To learn more about the impact of fellowships, visit our school’s website.

 

Thank you for following Professor Cockrum’s example and making a meaningful gift to our school to support the next generation of leaders from Anderson.

 

Lastly: Your perks (t-shirts, bobbleheads, etc.) are in production and will be sent out in about six weeks' time. Thanks for your patience on this!
