Dear Friends,

Cindy WilliamsNew years are about new beginnings, and this year will bring many opportunities to the University of Montana campus. President Seth Bodnar takes the reins in January. Seth has a deep passion for leading people and an appreciation of Montana that will serve the University well. I know you will join me in offering him and his family a warm Griz welcome.

One thing never changes, and that is our gratitude to you, our loyal supporters. From our UM family to yours, thank you for making this year one for the record books. Thank you for your continued belief in the transformative power of higher education – to change students’ lives, to produce groundbreaking research and to boost our state’s economic wellbeing.

May your holidays be bright, and the new year bring great things.

Cindy Williams
President and CEO University of Montana Foundation
