Friday night's gala on the WKU campus will include a celebration of the fund-raising campaign known as "A New Century of Spirit." During gala activities, the final figures for the campaign will be announced. University officials have been very pleased with progress on the campaign, particularly in light of unfavorable economic conditions that have been in effect for much of the five year project.
WKU Vice-President for Development and Alumni Relations Kathryn Costello says the campaign has resulted in "remarkable gifts that benefit students, faculty, and the campus as a whole."
Costello says "leadership" gifts played a key role in the success of the campaign, and she credits a hard working development staff for helping to make the effort a success.
