It is my honor to share the 2015-2016 Fiscal Year Honor Roll of Donors with you. As we embark on the next 75 years of Iona history, I am pleased to announce that funds raised and pledged for the Iona Forever campaign now exceed the campaign goal halfway point – a remarkable testament to the support of our loyal alumni.
As a first-generation college student, I am regularly struck by how many of our students are the first in their families to attend college. I am further touched by the outpouring of support for our students by our alumni, parents and friends throughout the community. We live our mission through every student accomplishment. Your gifts represent our mission and values through your confidence in the College and our ability to nurture students who will use their education to move the world.
I thank you for being an integral part of Iona College. You are the reason that the Iona Forever campaign has already begun enhancing learning and living environments, advancing faculty and dynamic academic programs, and is supporting a record level of student scholarships. I encourage you to continue investing in Iona as we strive to inspire our students, reach new heights of academic success, and advance our legacy.
Joseph E. Nyre, Ph.D.
