Few things give Mr. Vint Tilson more satisfaction in life than serving the students and faculty of Wingate University as Vice President for Resource Development. I work alongside an outstanding team of development professionals, who excel in their respective responsibilities, who are well-liked on and off campus, and who represent Wingate University in an exceptional manner. Institutional advancement has been my professional and personal calling since my first position at then Chowan College, in Murfreesboro, in 1981, which Libby, Hayes, and Evin called home until the summer of 2002. When we moved to Matthews, NC, I began employment at Wingate and Libby became Director of Performing Arts at Providence Day School in Charlotte, and Organist and Choir Master at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Waxhaw.
Participating in Wingate University’s $100,000,000 Secure the Promise Campaign was an honor and privilege for all of us in Resource Development. We cherish the relationships this University has developed over the years across many diverse constituencies, and we take great pride in nurturing these relationships for the benefit of our students and faculty. Securing gifts and pledges to add value to campus life, while engaging alumni and friends in our mission, are marvelous motivators that help us sustain excellence for this academic community we appreciate deeply. Please join us in this ever-changing, ever-advancing adventure that changes the lives of our students forever!
