Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

Professor Emeritus of Modern Languages and Literatures A. Henry Bova passed away on Aug. 23, 2013 in Fitchburg, Wis., at age 77.

Known as “Hank” to Beloiters, he was a professor of French at the college from 1965 to 2001 and was instrumental in establishing international exchange programs in Senegal, Tahiti, and Morocco. He was deeply involved in Beloit’s study abroad program in Rennes, France, which he directed for many years. In addition to teaching French, he taught Italian, literature, and German. Hank held a number of prestigious fellowships during his career, including a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship. Among his notable achievements at Beloit were his efforts to introduce Francophone women authors of color to Beloit’s curriculum in French literature and to develop and advance computer-enhanced methods for teaching French. Hank was predeceased by his life partner, Maurice Marc Gras, in 2003.
