#14-35


In celebration of those who have made significant contributions to the Jefferson College Foundation in support of Jefferson College and its students, the Jefferson College Foundation recently hosted its third Monticello Society recognition ceremony.

To further acknowledge their generous donation to create an endowed scholarship for non-traditional students, Branton and Jane Houser of DeSoto were inducted into the society. Jane has the distinction of being the college's first non-traditional student and the patriarch for several generations of family members who attended Jefferson.

The Monticello Society meets annually to recognize new members whose generosity and loyalty has a great impact on Jefferson College. As honorees, the Housers received an engraved, silver-plated pewter cup based on an original design by Thomas Jefferson.

Monticello Society attendees were also greeted by members of the Student Ambassadors, treated to refreshments prepared and donated by Specialized Catering Company headed by Foundation Board Member Mike Kumpf, and entertained by students from the college's Music Department.
