"Working on the Go Blue, Give Green campaign has taught me that giving is from the heart. I give what I can now because I know the importance of giving back to a University that has given me so many opportunities to succeed. It's never too early to start making a difference, so why not start today?" "I'm a huge believer in the value of a college education—value in its broadest sense, not just economically but intellectually and socially. I urge all of you to join with me to help support directly or indirectly the financial needs of the students that you work with every day, as well as the programs we've put together to help them succeed." "I give to the University because it helps my low-income and first generation students. I provide a gift account for the McNair Scholars Program so that I can directly help the students I serve. My favorite quote on giving is from Winston Churchill: 'We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.'"
