A Message from Parents Council Co-Chairs
Mike & Maureen Allen and Gary & Chris Pollock
All University of Lynchburg parents belong to the Lynchburg Parents Association. On behalf of the University of Lynchburg Parents Council, which represents the association, we welcome each of you – new, continuing, or former parents – to be involved in the activities of the College. This is an active and vibrant learning community and we encourage your participation with and support for Lynchburg.
We share many common bonds as parents of Lynchburg students, and we know all parents are interested in their student’s education. We encourage you to take a personal interest in the College by coming to campus to attend events when you are able, by visiting the College website regularly to see what is happening here on campus, and by talking with your student about his/her experience.
Parents Council members help the College in a number of ways by:
- Reaching out to fellow parents to encourage support of the Parents Fund as well as thanking them for their support
- Serving as an ambassador for prospective parents and students in enrollment activities
- Helping with Career Services activities such as providing internships or sharing career-related information or expertise
If you are interested in helping with any of these activities, please contact Becca Loftis at or 434-544-8752.
Also, some of our former parents may not be receiving the University of Lynchburg Magazine. If you would like to receive it, please contact us at .
We hope that each of you will enjoy all the opportunities that an association with University of Lynchburg offers, and that you will visit the campus often!
We also help to support the College through the Parents Fund, which supports the College’s Annual Fund, and hope you will consider joining us in making a gift. Collectively, all gifts from current and former parents to the Annual Fund form the Parents Fund. Your Parents Fund gift will enhance each student’s experience by providing student scholarships, faculty development, library and technology enhancements, and innovative academic and co-curricular programs and activities.
Support from Lynchburg parents makes the difference between a good education and an outstanding education for all of our students.
