The John Priest Greene Society honors the legacy of William Jewell’s longest-serving president. Dr. Greene’s devotion to the College for 30 years as president and 20 years as a Trustee has had a paramount influence on Jewell’s emergence as a national liberal arts college.
We are grateful to the 205 families who were members of the John Priest Greene Society in 2014-15. Click here to view our membership roster.
How Members honor Dr. Greene’s legacy
Joining the John Priest Greene Society means being part of a nationwide network of alumni, parents and friends who are active advocates for William Jewell. Each year we ask Society members to honor a commitment as a sustaining supporter by giving a $1,000 minimum leadership gift to the Jewell Fund. These annual gifts build strength for the Jewell Fund and strength for Jewell, making members an important part of our pursuit of excellence. In 2014, the Board of Trustees' Development Committee proudly introduced the John Priest Greene Society President's Circle, recognizing those donors committed to an annual gift of $10,000 or more.
Supporters who make the long-term commitment to Jewell by joining the John Priest Greene Society will be invited to an annual President’s Reception and will receive special invitations to gatherings held in conjunction with prominent College events. In addition, the College will recognize you in the annual President’s Report and will send a quarterly newsletter to keep you updated on Jewell news, as well as provide an annual report focused on the achievements of our students. When you make a first-time leadership gift of $1,000 or more, a personalized brick will be placed on the Quad in your honor.
