$50 for 50 Years...
As a token of our appreciation for all gifts of $50 or more to The Excellence Fund, we will send a copy of Wisdom Lights the Way: Virginia Wesleyan College's First Half-Century, written by Dr. Stephen Mansfield, archivist and former vice president of academic affairs and dean of the college.    
This historical narrative, complete with evocative illustrations, provides the basis for insight into how Virginia Wesleyan was born, and how, over the span of a half century, has come to achieve an identity and an image which its alumni can embrace with pride.
