Investing in the Future:
Rainy Day Fund Sustains Many SOE Opportunities
By Courtney Dale Norwood
Restore and replenish, that's what we do when it rains; and to keep up with the demands of providing excellence inside and out of the classroom, we rely on our "rainy day fund" to help along the way.
Summer is a time when we send students abroad to places such as Brazil, where they perform community health projects and share Christ. Making ends meet for these trips can be tricky, and for extra support, we look to our rainy day fund.
For students, professional conferences provide invigorating opportunities that enhance a Baylor education. Traveling to these conferences can be burdensome. To lighten the load, we look to our rainy day fund.
Our commitment to excellent education within the classroom often includes a dependence on technology. When we need to upgrade, we go to our rainy day fund.
Much like our faculty and students, our rainy day fund - better known as the School of Education's Excellence Fund - must be replenished continually. In fact, recently you may have received a call from a Baylor student asking you to help replenish the School of Education's Excellence Fund.
"Thank you" to those who supported this fund. Because of you, our students are building upon their calling through a Baylor education, and we hope others will join with you.
