Students need both positive learning opportunities and college experiences, and this belief is why Jim and Carol Ann Methvin regularly pledge to support the University of Montevallo.
The Methvins, who graduated in 1973, feel that their time and experiences at UM will always be a part of their lives. They have appreciated the University’s lasting impact it has had on their lives—from the practical life skills they received to the fond memories they will always keep.
So other students may have enjoyable college experiences, the Methvins feel that financial support of the UM Foundation is a major way to have an impact.
“Alumni have the opportunity to let their enthusiasm for Montevallo become gifts that can positively impact today’s students,” the Methvins said. “We can truly say that our gifts to the Foundation, over the years, have benefited all students; and in turn, our gifts have contributed to the unique sense of affection that all alumni have for the University of Montevallo.”
Recently, the Methvins watched with pride as their daughter graduated from Montevallo.
“It was a unique opportunity, for us, to observe her thorough education and fun college experiences that we, ourselves, similarly had many years ago,” the Methvins said.
For UM to keep providing excellence in education and memorable college experiences, it needs the support of fellow alumni.
“Our education and college experiences at the University of Montevallo will forever be an integral part of our lives,” the Methvins said.
