Why are you “forever green”?

“Growing up in Maryville provided me a unique perspective on how important the success of Northwest is to my hometown and the region as a whole. The college degree I earned, the friendships I formed, and the lasting memories Northwest provided me, created a strong foundation in both my personal and professional life. Serving in management at Nodaway Valley Bank has further reinforced my belief that Northwest provides a positive economic and social impact vital for the area. I owe so much to the University, and I feel that working to assist in creating opportunities for current and future Bearcats is a simple way to pay it forward. Being a Bearcat creates a lasting bond for all who attend the university, and striving to be ‘forever green’ is one of the best ways I can honor being a member of the Northwest family.”
