Goodes Honored as Outstanding Philanthropists


On November 15, two of Virginia Wesleyan’s most devoted supporter, Susan and David Goode, were honored as Outstanding Philanthropists during a luncheon sponsored by the Hampton Roads chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. VWC President Scott Miller and his wife, Annie; Senior Vice President Mort Gamble; Associate Vice President for Advancement Suzanne Savage; Board of Trustees Chair David Kaufman; Trustee Henry Watts H’07 and his wife Eleanor; and Dean of the Susan S. Goode School of Arts and Humanities Travis Malone attended the celebration, representing VWC. A number of other current and former trustees and special friends of the College were also in attendance. As part of the presentation, a special video was prepared as a tribute to the Goodes’ wonderful record of philanthropy for numerous organizations and causes in our region. Highlighted was their strong commitment to Virginia Wesleyan; Susan remains an active member of our College’s Board of Trustees.
