Students, staff and faculty raise nearly $2,500 for local charities
WABASH, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College Wabash recently completed a successful campaign for the United Fund of Wabash County as site leadership announced that students, staff and faculty have raised $2,489.01 for this year’s effort.
“The great thing about United Fund is that it gives us a way to invest in programs that have a positive impact on the quality of life for residents of Wabash County,” said Jon Troyer, an English instructor at the Wabash Campus who served as its United Fund Committee chairman. “Many of us, and many of our students, have benefited from United Fund-sponsored programs. In turn, we can have a part in helping those right here in the community who need
a hand up.”
The campaign included a pie-in-the-face contest in which students voted with money for the faculty or staff member they felt “deserved” a pie in the face. Troyer said staff member Patsy Favorite won the contest “hands down”. “She is very popular,” he said.
Pam Guthrie, site director for Ivy Tech Wabash, extended thanks to all those who made the campaign success possible, including Troyer and fellow faculty member Jerry Perkins who served as the campus’ United Fund Committee.
