One part of the Tusculum Fund is celebrating its 20th anniversary of providing support for students and programs.
The Pioneer Club was formed in 1991 and provides athletic scholarships and program support to all athletic programs at Tusculum. Donors who wish to support Tusculum’s student athletes through scholarships or support the athletic programs in the opportunities they provide to students can designate their gift to the Pioneer Club.
All Pioneer Club members are invited to attend Pioneer Club events, such as tailgates and hospitality suites. Members who join at the Pioneer Level ($300 – $499) or above are admitted free to all Pioneer Club events. Members may also receive discounts at the Tusculum College Bookstore, game passes and public address announcement recognition during games, depending on their level of giving.
This year’s Pioneer Club Campaign has begun. The goals for the 2011-2012 campaign are $100,000 and 350 members.
Larry Coughlin, a long-time supporter of the College, is serving as Chairman of this year’s campaign. Assisting Coughlin in the campaign are a committee consisting of Bill Henry, Thom Wood, a 1989 alumnus; Ken Earl, a 1998 and 2000 alumnus; Jackie Rose, a 1974 alumna; Doug DeBusk, a 1995 alumnus, Ray White and James Smith.
The committee members will promote and attend special Pioneer Club events and will seek to encourage others in the community to support the program and the student-athletes at Tusculum College. The committee members were selected because of their willingness to support the Pioneer Club programs and the students of Tusculum College.
