Dear Friend,

I am a proud member of the Class of 1979 and an adjunct professor of tax accounting at the A. B. Freeman School of Business. During my time as a student, there were not many women in managerial positions in business or accounting. The perception was that women could not have a full-time career and raise a family. Yet, Freeman gave me the skills I needed to excel in my 30-year career at LaPorte where I am currently the Director of Consulting Services.

Over the last 12 years as a faculty member, I have in turn shared my knowledge and real world experience with Freeman students – preparing them for their future success. Personally, I am proud to say that four of my past students presently work at LaPorte. I know first-hand that Freeman empowers its students in the classroom, in the community, and in their careers.

I have been very fortunate and credit much of my success to the Freeman School, therefore I enjoy giving back. Contributions to the Freeman Annual Fund help provide scholarships and fellowships to deserving students, seed money for special projects and initiatives, and ensure world-class facilities and programming. These initiatives strengthen the educational experience for Freeman students and the reputation of Freeman both nationally and globally.

I hope you will consider giving to Freeman this year to empower our students and secure Freeman’s position as a leading business school. Please join me and make your gift online by June 30th.
