Dear Fellow Alumni,
When I rst came to North exas State eacher s’ College, a gentleman by the name of Wilfred Bain was dean and had begun transforming our sleepy little school into one of the nest music programs in the nation. I am a proud graduate of the College of Music and I have continued my involvement by attending concerts and events on campus and by supporting the college
nancially. Today, under the leadership of dean James Scott, the College of Music continues to build on its legacy of excellence,
graduating top-notch musicians and educators who continue to impact the music world in positive ways.
I have watched Dr. Scott tirelessly serve the College of Music, propelling his vision of creating a unique environment for the transformation of student musicians’ lives. His dedication and leadership remind me so much of Wilfred Bain.
I am writing you today to ask you to help celebrate the tradition of music at North Texas, and to honor its leadership, who have thoughtfully guided it to its world-class stature. My life was changed forever by my experiences at North Texas. For this reason, I am asking you to join me in supporting our alma mater by making a gift to the music scholarship fund. I am so committed to the continued success of the College of Music that I will give an additional $10 for every gift made by fellow alumni through August 31, 2011.
Music will always be an important part of my life. I urge you to take this opportunity to participate in giving to the college to show your appreciation for our alma mater. Let us help future musicians by extending our support as those before us have extended theirs. Please send your gift today.
If you have not already had the chance, I hope you take an opportunity to visit the campus. Although it has changed in so many ways, one thing remains constant: e College of Music continues to provide top quality, comprehensive training for young artists from all over the world, changing their lives forever, just as it changed mine.
With warmest regards,
Charles W. Nelson (’50, BM and ’51, MME) UNT Distinguished Alumnus, 2009
