Dear Ole Miss Family and Friends,
Earlier this week, the Fenton Kottkamp Memorial Scholarship hit its goal of $60,580. In fact, the campaign now has exceeded its goal! I join the Kottkamp family in expressing thanks for your great response. Because of your generosity, two students yearly will be able to experience Ole Miss in Fenton’s honor in perpetuity. This campaign’s success has brought comfort to everyone who loves Fenton, and your gifts made this possible.
During the Nov. 21 Ole Miss-LSU game, the Papa John’s franchise in Oxford has generously offered to donate a portion of the pizza sales from Vaught-Hemingway Stadium to Fenton’s scholarship. With this in mind, we have decided to extend the project until 11:59 pm on Nov. 21. We will also be increasing our goal to $80,000, a level that will provide three annual scholarships! If you have not yet made a gift, please decide today to contribute to this worthy initiative, and purchase lots of Papa John’s pizza during the Ole Miss-LSU game! Fenton was always known to dress for the occasion, and Halloween was no exception. As you prepare your Halloween costume, I hope you'll carry a little bit of Fenton's holiday spirit with you.
Fenton always left his friends with hilarious memories and good stories to share. Halloween is a particularly special time to honor Fenton, and I hope you will remember this scholarship during your weekend celebrations.
It is a blessing and an honor to help expand the legacy of one of my best friends and, in turn, help future student leaders attend the Flagship University we all know and love. The University of Mississippi and Fenton Kottkamp have been known to change lives, and this is an opportunity to donate to a cause that will allow that spirit to continue for years to come.
Again, thank you for your incredible support thus far! Please help us achieve our stretch goal, and as always – please love one another.
God Bless & Hotty Toddy
