Thank You Week

In conjunction with National Teacher Appreciation Week, Hamline is celebrating its second annual Thank You Week during May 4-8. This event gives you the opportunity to thank faculty, staff, and classmates who made a difference in your life, by making a contribution in their honor or memory.

To honor the people who supported you while you were at Hamline, visit our online gift form at www.hamline.edu/giving between May 4 and 8, and include your honoree’s name in either the “gifts in honor” or the “gifts in memory” section of the form. We will notify the honoree or the honoree’s family of your contribution. All of those recognized during the week will also be listed on this page.

As an added incentive, a generous alumnus and long-time volunteer has agreed to match all gifts made May 4-8 up to $10,000 (match will go to student scholarships).

The honorees for Thank You Week 2015 are listed below.
