Abbott and Powelson Lead Faculty and Staff Campaign

The Faculty and Staff Campaign has kicked off at Truman. All faculty and staff will receive information about supporting the Truman State University Foundation through the 2007 Faculty and Staff Campaign. Von Abbott, assistant director of public safety, and Stephanie Powelson, nursing program director and associate professor of nursing, are the campaign co-chairs.

The theme for this year’s campaign is “Changing Lives.” The University annually asks alumni, trustees, community businesses, parents and faculty and staff to invest in Truman. This campaign includes goals to raise $110,000 and reach a faculty and staff participation rate of 68 percent. The gifts support scholarships, study abroad opportunities, faculty development and research, departmental needs, cultural programs, the library, athletic programs and more.

The campaign push will continue through March 16. However, all gifts from July 1, 2006, through June 30, 2007, will be counted toward the campaign.

There will be a drawing in mid-March to give away prize packages, including the personal parking spot for a year, Cardinals tickets and more. Log on to to find out how to enter a chance to win one of these prizes. Also check the Web site for campaign updates.
