Leadership Greeting

Dear Alumni and Friends:

The beautiful mountains reflect the symbolic strength of our region. With that strength, we have been forged by patriotism, pride, self-reliance, humility and compassion. We also have an unbridled generosity based on the spirit of helping others.

East Tennessee State University's students, faculty and staff benefit directly from each of your gifts, earnings on endowments you've established and the effective use of your unrestricted contributions. In turn, our region enjoys the benefit of educated citizens, employees, and leaders who will serve us all for years in the future. Each day these graduates and former students add quality to our life.

It is important for you to know that the Foundation leadership and the Advancement staff pledge their utmost integrity to insure that all gifts are used precisely as requested. With a record of careful management, validated by our exemplary audited performance through the years, the Foundation's conservative investment and management philosophy is a stable, guiding principle that allows us to provide the "margin of excellence" in good times and bad.

Again, we thank each of you for your generosity and trust.

Roger Kennedy
Foundation Chairman

Brian Noland
University President


Dr. Noland
