Vestal To Begin Duties At TWU On May 1


DENTON — The Texas Woman's University Foundation will underwrite the salary of new TWU Vice President for Institutional Development Gene Vestal so he can begin work earlier than planned. Mr. Vestal will begin his duties at TWU on May 1. Originally, because of budget considerations, he was to begin work on Sept. 1.

"Private financial support is critical to TWU's continued excellence in such economic times," said Diane Dwight, president of the TWU Foundation. "The search committee was very impressed with Mr. Vestal's experience in fundraising. We believe exciting things are in store for TWU, and his early arrival will help the university stay on its current path."

Mr. Vestal has been at the University of North Texas' since 1996, first serving as associate vice president for development and currently serving as special assistant to the UNT president. He has more than 20 years experience in fundraising. His previous experience includes serving as managing partner for First Counsel Inc., executive director of the Association for Retarded Citizens (ARC) of Dallas and executive director of the ARC of Greater Tarrant County. He earned a bachelor of arts degree in English and history from Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Ark.

"The TWU Foundation's generosity is greatly appreciated," said Dr. Ann Stuart, TWU chancellor. "The vice president for institutional development will help Texas Woman's University sustain its momentum."
