As chair of the President’s Council, the volunteer body that seeks support for Plymouth State University, I am proud to report the great momentum developing among alumni, parents, and other supporters to secure the institution’s foundation and build its future.

In the fall, we proudly marked the official opening of the Plymouth State University Welcome Center and Ice Arena, Phase I of the Center for Active Living, Learning, and Wellness (ALLWell). We believe it to be the most visible sign of how philanthropy is transforming the face of PSU. Stop by to see many names of donors represented on seats, lockers, rooms, and spaces, and especially in the Hanaway Rink and the Eugene and Joan Savage Welcome Center.

Many other recent gifts also are expanding the quality and scope of educational experiences PSU is providing. From scholarships and professorships, to program funds, to annual support for the Tower Fund, alumni and friends are stepping forward to provide for faculty and staff development, enhanced student life, and a more beautiful campus.

In the coming year, you will see fundraising efforts focusing on the much-anticipated Museum of the White Mountains, on athletics programs and health initiatives, and endowed professorships and scholarships.

There has never been a more exciting and vital time on campus as the work of so many alumni, parents, and friends comes together in support of Plymouth State. We hope you will join us as we gather the financial and volunteer resources that will keep the University moving forward.

Thank you for all you do for PSU.

Wallace R. Stevens ’62,
Chair, President’s Council
