The Alumni Legacy Campaign is a multi-generational program to enrich and enhance the lives of our alumni and their families. Our first phase of this program is to generate funds for legacy scholarships. Legacy scholarships are available through an application process to children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, siblings, and spouses of our alumni. This year, our requested donation is $108 to celebrate Dixie State University’s 108th birthday. Of course, any donation amount will be gratefully accepted and appreciated.
The bottom line to this initiative is that we want our alumni’s children back on our campus as university students. We want to make sure that our alumni and their children feel supported financially in this effort to continue their tradition. You, our alumni, started this tradition and legacy when you came to Dixie. We hope to see your legacy continue through the generations!
Phase two of the legacy campaign will assist in the preparation of your legacy children for their post-high school lives! We are now working with all the colleges and programs on campus to include learning opportunities like music, science, and geology camps, and many others. We are also looking at how we could supplement a child whose education may have a challenge in an area such as English, math, science, technology. We have tremendous resources in the form of people who can guide parents and grandparents with the best practices needed learning specific to the ages and needs of the children in their families.
We are confident these programs and others forthcoming will give our legacy children the help that they need to be ready for their post-high school life. The purpose of these activities is to enrich and enhance the lives of all our alumni and their children.
This is the legacy of your experience at Dixie, and we want it to continue to your loved ones for generations to come. The time frame for this phase will be over the next few years and will require many hours from faculty and staff at DSU and many alumni and community volunteers. We invite you to join us either through expertise, time, or financial resources to assist in making this phase robust and effective.
