"We sing the praise of her we love."
Recalling our alma mater encourages me to “give back” annually to Columbia College so we may help to secure this unique and valuable institution. However, Bob and I wanted to do more, so we have provided for Columbia College in our will and , in addition, will receive an unlimited federal estate tax deduction. Through this gift we will be a part of the R. Wright Spears Heritage Society and we will help Columbia College continue to thrive for many years to come.
