The Center for Engaged Teaching and Learning (CETL) at Kentucky Wesleyan College hosted a closing ceremony for its 2018 United Way Campaign on Friday, Oct. 19 in Rogers Hall in the Winchester Campus Community Center. The ceremony marked the end of the college’s campaign to raise funds and featured a check presentation to the United Way of the Ohio Valley CEO, David Ross.
Annually, the CETL office coordinates this campus-wide effort to raise money for the United Way, which aids in funding a number of community organizations. Kentucky Wesleyan College surpassed its 2018 goal of $2,818 by raising over $3,000 this year.
“We are consistently humbled by the generosity and caring of our colleagues and students each year,” said Jay Helmer, Associate Director of CETL. “The funds raised through the United Way are critical to so many organizations and we are grateful to be able to help extend The Wesleyan Way into the Owensboro community.”
During the week, faculty, staff and students were asked to support the United Way through donations and with a series of activities including staff and faculty pledges, student-led fundraising initiatives and campus events. The closing ceremony provided an opportunity to say thanks to all who have contributed to the effort.
