RSU Exceeds 2011 Goal for United Way Campaign

Rogers State University recently completed its annual United Way campaign with members of the campus community raising more than $10,500. The 2011 total represents the largest United Way campaign in RSU history, exceeding its previous high water mark by nearly 60 percent.

The campus raised funds through a chili cook-off, an online auction and a pledge drive.

“I want to give special thanks to our committee co-chair Frances Morris and the entire RSU United Way Committee who reached out to others in their departments and the community at large to help make our campaign drive a wonderful success,” said David Barron, co-chair and executive director of enrollment management.

RSU is committed to making a difference in the communities it serves. Through its support of the Rogers County United Way, RSU is positively affecting the lives of area residents.

This year’s fundraising campaign was led by co-chairs Morris and Barron. Other committee members were Mary Rose Hart, Candice Nivison, Cathy Kennemer, Dan Schiedel, Gregory J. Thompson, John Nickel, Kelli Fields, Leonard Szopinski, Marissa Littlefield, Megan Hurst, Rhonda Spurlock, Sara Williams, Susan Bedwell and Yvonne Pace.
