Catamount Scholarship Fund Campaign Enters Final Days

June 24, 2010

Cullowhee, N.C. -

As Western Carolina University enters the final days before the end of the fiscal year on June 30th, the Catamount Club and WCU Athletics continues to need the support of each of its fans and supporters to reach the goal of raising $400,000 to the Catamount Athletic Scholarship Fund. Contributions made to The Catamount Club will directly impact the Athletic Scholarship Fund which supports each of WCU's 16 intercollegiate sports.

"Throughout the past year, the Catamount Club has added over 200 new members in its support of WCU Athletics through a variety of events including the Catamount Golf Tour and the Spring Coaches' Caravan," said Gorham Bradley, who assumed a full-time role with the Club this year. "We are extremely grateful for the financial support that our membership has contributed to the Catamount Scholarship Fund as The Catamount Club strives to achieve our mission of funding scholarships to win championships."

As the programs enter the 2010-11 Catamount Club Membership Year, Bradley and the organization are encouraging each of supporter to renew their Catamount Club membership by Wednesday, June 30th. As WCU Athletics finalizes its Scholarship Budget for next year, the success of the Catamount Club plays a critical role in providing scholarship support to WCU student-athletes.

"As you consider your level of support for the upcoming membership year, please keep in mind that by upgrading to the next membership level, you will be entitled to a 30% discount on your new level," Bradley added.
