The Fred J. Lewis Society

Posted by on Tuesday, November 17, 2009 in Fall 2009, Giving.

Join the Lewis Society

July 1, 2008–June 30, 2009

Many of the School of Engineering’s most dedicated donors are members of the Fred J. Lewis Society. Established more than 30 years ago, the Lewis Society honors the legacy of Dean Fred J. Lewis. Under his leadership from 1933 to 1959, the school enjoyed an upsurge in enrollment, expansion of facilities and strengthening of academic programs. Today the same tradition continues through the generous support of Lewis Society members.

The Lewis Society plays an integral role in the success of the Vanderbilt University School of Engineering. The financial support of alumni, parents and friends helps deserving students receive an exemplary engineering education as well as a wonderful overall academic experience at Vanderbilt. It makes a positive difference in the lives of our students and faculty, and ensures continued growth of the school.

Please consider joining the Lewis Society today and investing in the future of the School of Engineering. If your company has a matching gift program, your gift may be doubled or even tripled. Please use your matching gift to join the Lewis Society now.

For more information, please contact Lydia Park in the school’s Development and Alumni Relations Office by calling (615) 322-4934.

Lewis Society members are recognized for making a five-year pledge of $5,000 or more, or a single gift of $1,000 or more to the School of Engineering. Graduates of the past 10 years are recognized for making a five-year pledge of $2,500 or more, or a single gift of $500 or more to the school. Membership on the list presented here is based on gifts received during our fiscal year of July 1, 2008–June 30, 2009.

“My association with Vanderbilt started when I was one, when we lived on campus while my father was in medical school. I always knew I would return when it came time to go to college. My Vanderbilt education provided me with the foundation for a successful career, and I feel blessed to be able to give something back so others can have the same opportunity.”

“After two years at the School of Engineering, I returned home to find my father critically ill. I had to stay home for a year to help the family, which required the forfeiture of my NROTC Scholarship. After my father’s death, I wanted to return, but I didn’t have any money. I made an appointment with Dean Fred J. Lewis. He said, ‘Walter, go home and pack your clothes–you’re going back to school.’ “I’ve always been thankful to Dean Lewis and the unknown individuals who provided the funds for me to complete my degree. I can never repay those that made this possible, so the Fred J. Lewis Society provides the opportunity to return a small part of what the School of Engineering gave me. Vanderbilt changed my life and just recalling that meeting many years ago with Dean Lewis continues to cause tears of joy and thankfulness.”
