Torchbearers are volunteers approved by academic component leadership whose job is to inspire and rally the TWU community during the SECC fundraising campaign. These individuals represent their academic component, are the contact person for submitting SECC donations and who can answer questions about the TWU SECC fundraising activities.
Bettye Myers Incentive Awards
Dr. Bettye Myers once again challenges our 2017 Torchbearers! Academic departments turning in completed pledge forms from 100% of their employees will be eligible to win a $1,000 scholarship courtesy of Dr. Myers.
Non-academic departments turning in completed pledge forms from 100% of their employees will be entered into a drawing to win a $1,000 to use as they wish.
We have finalized a deadline for the Dr. Bettye Myers 100% Challenge - Monday, October 9, 2017 by 5:00 PM.
All paperwork and forms must be turned in to Nora Sierra, ACT 10, to be eligible.
We love the excitement this challenge offers and it always gets our campaign started in a big way. MANY thanks to Dr. Myers for her generosity in this gift over the many years she has funded this challenge. We hope each of you will encourage your program or department to pursue the 100% participation challenge!
