Good news for Emporia State University.

The Now and Forever campaign has passed the quarter pole, in a manner of speaking. Foundation President DenaSue Potestio was a guest on our ESU Buzz with President Dr. Michael Shonrock on Thursday.

“Our working goal is $45 million. I’m very happy to report we are cresting $12 million towards that goal,” she said.

The campaign is designed to enhance life on campus in all aspects.

“Scholarships help us to drive enrollment, so we’re raising money for scholarships, we’re raising money for our faculty and our campus. Every single dollar counts,” she added.

Now and Forever is the largest, most comprehensive fundraising campaign in Emporia State history. More information is available at www.nowandforever.org. In a rare move, both Potestio and Shonrock gave listeners their personal cell phone numbers to get additional information -- Potestio at 803-9016, Shonrock at 794-3544.
