Here's a way to make yourself feel good about ECU

Go online or write a check to support Access Scholars at ECU. Maybe you work for a company that will match your contribution, especially on Giving Tuesday. I promise you it will make you feel good.

Take the discussions about the football team offline for a few minutes and remember who the university is really for.

Like many on the board, I give annually to a number of ECU-related programs and initiatives, one of which is the Access Scholars.

Be assured, I do not hold myself up as any kind of example. There are many, many people - including many who post here regularly - who give a heckuva lot more than I do. I pass this along really because the impact is so dramatic.

I have had the chance to attend a luncheon the last several years to honor Access Scholars, and I can tell you there is no better feeling than being a part of helping a first-generation college student get to ECU when they were not expecting to be able to do so. If you believe in ECU's mission of service, the Access Scholars program is a great way to support the mission.

Every dollar helps, literally.
