F&M's Volunteers are Invaluable
"Your engagement enhances the lives of students and faculty, and your volunteerism sets a standard for leadership."
April 24, 2017
Dear F&M Friend:
I am writing to thank you for your generous service as a volunteer for Franklin & Marshall College.
The F&M community flourishes when our volunteers extend their resources and time to recruit and mentor talented students, lead alumni chapters around the country and world, and help grow our resources for the fulfillment of our mission as a leading national liberal arts college. Your engagement enhances the lives of students and faculty, and your volunteerism sets a standard for leadership.
Your service also elevates the education of every F&M student, as they strive to create their own learning opportunities and become the thinkers, innovators, and changemakers of the next generation.
Their achievements are enlarged by your commitment to their education—whether they are partnering with faculty members to conduct research, creating organizations to solve societal problems, traveling abroad to explore new cultures, or competing at top levels for national recognition and honors.
Your contributions inspire the very spirit of an F&M education, as you demonstrate a continued investment in learning, sustain the traditions of our long history, and work to raise our national profile of academic excellence and innovation. We are a stronger F&M community because of the assets and perspectives that each volunteer brings to our mission as a liberal arts college—and as an invaluable model of education in American society.
Thank you, again, for representing our institution with pride and integrity, and for helping to shape the enduring legacy of Franklin & Marshall College.
All the best,
Daniel R. Porterfield, Ph.D.
