TWU’S DENTON CAMPUS AT 94 PERCENT OF SECC GOAL

With little more than a week to go, Texas Woman’s University’s Denton employees have collected $47,169, or 94 percent of their goal for the State Employees Charitable Campaign (SECC).  There’s still time to contribute.  SECC forms should be sent directly to the Bursar’s Office (marked confidential to Kathy Woods) no later than Oct. 31.

TWU’s overall goal for the SECC is $60,000, with 85 percent faculty and staff participation from its Denton, Dallas and Houston centers.

Contributors are asked to keep in mind that the TWU Foundation is an approved entity for contributions through the campaign.  This is the first year the foundation has been approved to receive contributions, which go toward general scholarships for TWU students.

Winners of the Charity Ball fund-raiser held Oct. 17 were:

From the King of Klutzes League:

From the Professional League:

The Third Annual SECC Chili Cook-Off and Auction will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25 in the Pioneer Hall Gymnasium on the Denton campus.  The deadline for chefs to enter is 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22.  Prizes will be awarded for “Hottest,” “Best Tasting” and “Best Vegetarian” chili.  A “People’s Choice Award” also will be presented.  All proceeds from the cook-off and auction will go toward the Denton SECC goal of $50,000.

For more information on the campaign, visit www.twu.edu/secc.

Dr. Martin was honored for his extraordinary contributions to the archival profession over a period of many years.  Fellows are elected by a select committee comprising the five immediate past presidents of SAA and three Fellows selected by SAA’s governing council.
