Alumni Center to be a reality
ASU Alumni Association announced a $2 million gift last week from
Charlotte and Darrell Cooper of Clarkston, Mich., and Reno, Nev.
Both Charlotte and Darrell Cooper are 1964 graduates of ASU and
are life members of the ASU Alumni Association. He was named a
Distinguished Alumnus in 2000. The contribution was given toward the
construction of a $5 million, 20,000 square-foot Alumni Center. The
facility, which will be called Cooper Alumni Center, will be built on
the grounds near the lake across from the pavilion. The area is known to
many ASU alumni as the site of the “old pavilion.”

Torchbearer Campaign lifts off!
The ASU Torchbearer '04 campaign has achieved lift off status with more
than 300 members. Did you miss take-off? All current and retired
faculty and staff are eligible to join and it's not too late to board.
Everyone should have received a brochure by now; if not, please contact
the Development Office at 972-3940 or
firstname.lastname@example.org and they
will gladly furnish materials or information. If you have a
brochure but just haven't taken the time to fill it out, now is the time
to do so and return it to the Development Office.
Torchbearers is your opportunity to support academics
at ASU. Every college, academic department, and most programs
(such as Delta National Small Prints Exhibition, ASU Museum, Library
Enrichment, and KASU) have their own fund in the ASU Foundation that you
can designate for your gift. Every dollar you give goes
directly into that fund. The minimum gift to be a Torchbearer is $50 by
check, cash, or payroll deduction. The painless way to achieve
this gift is a continuous year-round payroll deduction of $2.
Membership privileges include a Torchbearer lanyard for
your ID badge and an invitation to the Nov. 12 afternoon reception at
Fowler Center. All members' names will be placed in a drawing
for 30 prizes, including a Peabody Little Rock bed and breakfast
package, a Joey Glaub photo session and wall portrait, lunch (pie
included) at Carr's, a ConAgra camo cooler, or a day at The Pink Palace
