Why do you give to Whitworth?: "I feel that we change students’ lives here. God has been gracious to my husband and me. I believe we are called to give back to organizations we believe in." --- If you had $1 million to give, what would you do with it?: "I tend to be a 'debt-averse' person. I would like to see Whitworth reduce the debt. $1 million would not go far & would be unseen, but I think it would serve future students in the greatest way to have the university debt-free."
