Letter From the President
The University of Idaho changes lives. I’ve heard many inspiring stories from students and alumni about how the U of I experience shaped careers, relationships and families.
In this issue you’ll read about students who’ve worked hard, overcome obstacles and found inspiration and support at our university. When passion and diligence meet opportunity, great things tend to happen.
Avelardo Vargas is using scholarships to carve out a career in the dairy industry and inspiring fellow underrepresented students in agricultural. Wyryor Noil is balancing student teaching and playing for the Vandal football team, inspiring young students through experiential learning. And third-year medical student Mike Reynolds is tackling teen suicide by providing mental health training for teachers and school officials in Jerome. These students are going beyond the curriculum and lifting their communities while they gain experience that will serve them well going forward.
Brave. Bold. is our guarantee to Idaho’s students that we are committed to their success. Providing financial support for hardworking, deserving students and expanding programs that enrich the student experience prepares graduates for meaningful careers.
Whether you are an alumni, a donor, a parent, a community member… you are all part of our Vandal Family and you make a difference in the lives of our students. By supporting them, you are investing in our shared future.
