On Thursday, November 14th, students gathered in the Pit area of Pihlblad Memorial Union for Thank-A-Thon 2013. Each year, this event, hosted by the Advancement/Alumni Offices, gives current students the opportunity to write thank you notes to those donors who helped them afford a Bethany education. This year, thank you notes were written to members of the Stan Talbott Society.
The Stan Talbott Society recognizes people who have made a long-term commitment to supporting Bethany College. Membership is earned by those who make gifts to the Annual Fund for five consecutive years, and is maintained by continued annual giving. The society is named in honor of Stan Talbott. Stan Talbott, ’46, served as Bethany’s Alumni Director for more than 20 years until his retirement in 1986. A tireless supporter of Bethany, Stan was known for his rousing renditions of Rockar Stockar whenever alumni and friends of Bethany were gathered. Stan passed away in 2003.
