A word from Debbie Bell, recently retired Associate Director of the UTC Honors College:
“I retired from UTC after more than 40 years; my husband, Michael, retired a few months later. The last 23 years of my working life were in Honors. Beyond working with amazing students and dedicated colleagues, Michael and I were privileged to travel and to develop close personal relationships with many of the students. (In fact, we’ve attended 26 weddings, including 11 where honors students/alumni married each other!) And we saw first-hand the impact that enriching opportunities and a community of shared experiences has on a student.
Our lives were enriched through our association with Honors and we want to see students continue to benefit from what the Honors College offers. This is why we choose to continue our support of its mission to help students grow personally and professionally. We are sponsoring a table at the Gala because funding is essential to achieving those goals. We also recently included the Honors College in our Estate Plan to ensure our support can continue.
Please consider making your own gift so future students will have the opportunity to enjoy the same experiences that so many of you remember. And come to the Gala on Saturday, October 9th!”
