Message from the dean

Headshot: Ward Farnsworth

Welcome to the roster of devoted supporters who participated in our 2018-19 annual giving campaign. They are our heroes.

Maintaining the excellence of the school depends on alumni support. If you’re not in this report, consider this an invitation to be one of the first to get on next year’s list!

Hook ’em,
Dean Ward Farnsworth
