Tribute Gifts honoring Dr. Jann Rudd Weitzel

In support of the Investiture of Dr. Weitzel as the twelfth president of Cottey College, the Inauguration Planning Committee and the Cottey College Board of Trustees have established the Jann Rudd Weitzel Imagine Scholarship for tribute gifts in her honor.

Dr. Weitzel firmly believes in the mission of Cottey College, to educate women, to encourage global awareness and involvement, to develop and demonstrate skills of leadership, and to offer students a rigorous academic curriculum coupled with an engaging campus environment. Inauguration activities will honor the past, celebrate the present, and Imagine the bright future. We are particularly honored to commemorate the investiture of Dr. Jann Rudd Weitzel by establishing a scholarship that will forever encourage young women to live their dreams.

  • Gifts may be made by an individual, a suite, a class, or other recognized group by the College to honor an alumna or alumnae.
  • Name(s) inscribed on a paver must be that of an alumna or alumnae.
  • The inscription will be submitted to the Office of Institutional Advancement for final approval at the time the gift is made.
