Annual Giving Recognizes Student Fundraising Achievements

Six students from the Annual Fund caller program were honored for individually raising more than $25,000 for Texas Tech during the annual presentation of the $25,000 Pyramid awards.

The $25,000 Pyramid award recognizes students working in the Office of Annual Giving Programs who raise at least $25,000 from Texas Tech as student callers. This year’s awards were presented by Associate Vice Chancellor for Institutional Advancement Scotty W. Cooksey and Senior Director of Annual Giving Programs Deborah Finlayson during a lunch recognizing the recipients on Nov. 6.

Ashley Averitte, a restaurant, hotel and institutional management major from Fort Worth, Texas, was recognized for reaching the $100,000 level.
