What does Southeast Missouri State University mean to you?

SEMO is where my grandson has chosen to earn his college degree and to play football. I am so very proud of the young man he is becoming and I see the joy and pride in his eyes when he speaks of his experiences at school. I wish the best for Garrett Todd #86 in his endeavors and I feel he is exactly where he needs to be to succeed.

Why is it important to support students (at a time like this)?

Many are concerned about everything that is happening in our world today. They need to know that everything is going to be ok. When we are positive they will feel positive.

Why do you give to Southeast?

A little selfish. I support Garrett Todd and his friends. I believe sports are an important part of a total life if that is where a persons interest lie, so I want to always see the athletic departments succeed.

Why do you believe the work of the Foundation is important?

Good support for the students.

What personal experiences have you had with the students you have helped (who have been helped by the Foundation)?

Not much. Grandson and his parents keep me informed of the importance of the financial support.

Why should other people give to Southeast?

Our future lies with these young people.
