Exciting things are happening on campus! The Campus Center has been demolished,
making way for the construction of the new student center, Brock Commons, opening
this spring. And knowing that the Brock Commons would not be complete without a
special recognition for Barclay and Rob DuPriest '69, the "Friends of Barclay
and Rob" fund has been established.
As a regular on campus since his freshman year, Rob has demonstrated his dedication
to the college time and time again, rarely missing an opportunity to support R-MC
teams or come to alumni gatherings. Initially connected through Rob, Barclay has
been adored by generations of Yellow Jackets and cemented her place in Randolph-Macon
history when she joined the staff as the bookstore manager more than 25 years ago.
She has become an "on campus mom" to many—myself included—and a dear friend to all.
Adding to Barclay and Rob's love for Randolph-Macon is their continued connection
to the friends of their son Tad '95. Staff and students have benefitted greatly
from the positive impact Barclay and Rob have made on campus for generations.
I hope you will consider expressing your appreciation of this wonderful couple by
making a gift to support the new campus center. Gifts and pledges of $1,000 or more
received by June 1, 2013 will be recognized in the Brock Commons, and Barclay and
Rob will be given a list of all donors to the fund. More importantly, your participation
will demonstrate not only your respect and admiration of Barclay and Rob, but also
your belief in Randolph-Macon's future.
Some of you have received calls from Barclay, asking you to support the College
through an annual gift. In recognition of their ardent belief in annual giving,
donations to this fund will be split 25% to THE RANDOLPH-MACON FUND and 75% to the
Brock Commons building fund.
Please join me in giving to the "Friends of Barclay and Rob". All gifts may be pledged
over a 5-year period and naming opportunities are available. Please contact Myra
