"In honor of… "

2013 Ferrum College graduatesWe know that you and your family have looked forward to watching your senior walk across the graduation stage for a very long time now!  So we want to say congratulations to you too! This year for our commencement program, we are offering a “In honor of” page for our seniors from their families. We also invite your extended family and friends to participate as well! This opportunity allows for you to write an up to 20 word message to your senior from you. 

Here are just a few examples of messages you can leave!

John, you have accomplished so much in your four years at Ferrum! We are so proud!
- Love, Mom & Dad”

“Katie, we knew you could do it! We are so proud of our college graduate!
-Love, Grandma & Grandpa”

“Christopher, you have reached such a great milestone, one of many you will accomplish in life!
- Love your family”

In order for your graduate to be recognized in the program, we are asking that parents donate to the Ferrum Fund in honor of their student. This is a fund that goes directly back to our students here on campus. It assists with financial aid, tuition, books and lab fees.  No pledge is too small! What better way to honor your graduate, than by giving back to their alma mater! 

Payment and messages must be received by April 29, 2016.

If you are interested in honoring your senior and his/her accomplishments, we have a couple of payment options: 

You can pay online and select “Other” in the Gift Designation drop box. 
After that step, please type “Senior Message” in the “Other” box below. 
You can then email your message to Brooke Gill at bgill@ferrum.edu with the subject line of “Senior Message.”
