Wittenberg Guild Reaches Million-Dollar Milestone
Founded June 1, 1940 by Wittenberg President R. Edgar Tulloss, the Wittenberg Guild has raised significant funds for the university in the form of scholarships, art work, the Ann Miller Gallery, pianos for Krieg Hall, campus landscaping and the Wally Witt sculpture.
Now, as the Guild prepares to celebrate its 70th anniversary, it will also celebrate the millionth dollar raised to assist area students in attending Wittenberg. Although many Guild members have no formal connection to Wittenberg, either as alumnae or employees, all share a deep desire to be advocates for the university in the community and to promote Wittenberg to prospective students.
“As members of the Wittenberg Guild, we take pride in its affiliation with the university,” said Mary Lou Loftis, former Guild president. Wittenberg plays a vital role in the cultural, educational and economic well-being of our community, and we feel that we can best benefit both Wittenberg and the community by providing funds for scholarships for our qualified area students.”
