Dear Class of 2016 Seniors,
We are so incredibly grateful for all the senior class support we have received. Since our Thanksgiving update, we have received 14 more donations and our senior class participation number is up to 554 seniors!
As you may know, today is Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Ole Miss is officially celebrating today as #RebelsGive on #GivingTuesday. As members of the Ole Miss Family, we are so fortunate to experience all that the University of Mississippi has to offer. Now it is our turn to give back to the place that has given us so much. Every senior class member donation brings us closer to our primary goal of raising the trio of flag poles in front of The Pavilion and our secondary goal of achieving the highest senior class participation rate in Ole Miss history. These significant goals will forever solidify the Class of 2016’s legacy at Ole Miss.
In honor of it being #GivingTuesday, we want to give back to a few lucky seniors. All participating seniors will be eligible for the Class of 2016 Mega Giveaway Contest! Seniors – participate today and WIN BIG! (We’re talking a Hover Board and much more!).
Thanks to the generosity of Ole Miss Athletics, all #FlagshipSENIORS will have a chance to win a Coach Andy Kennedy-autographed basketball, a Coach Hugh Freeze-autographed football, and one of 5 VIP tickets to the Ole Miss vs. Mizzou basketball game on February 3, 2016 in The Pavilion!
Thanks to The Ole Miss Fund for the awesome Grand Prize if we meet our participation goal of 50% of our class – a hover board! Only members of the senior class are eligible to win – and only if they make a contribution to the 2016 Senior Class Legacy Gift and include their name on the donor wall. Winners will be announced at the conclusion of our campaign. Follow us on Twitter: @UMSeniors2016 to see if you’re a winner!
The clock is ticking! We have 12 days left to reach our goal of $10,000 and 2,016 participating seniors! We’re encouraging seniors to give $20.16 in honor of our graduation year, but a gift as small as $5 will count toward student participation Your help is critical in helping us reach our goal!
Be a Flagship Senior today!
Happy #GivingTuesday and #FlagshipSeniors2016!
Mary Kate Berger, Senior Class President
Vivian Paris, Senior Class Vice President
Heather Neilson, Senior Class Treasurer
