Freed-Hardeman University First Lady Tracie Shannon and the Office of Alumni Engagement are launching a project in celebration of children who join alumni families through birth or adoption.
A letter of congratulation, accompanied by a Freed-Hardeman-branded onesie and a $500 scholarship for the child will be sent to the parents when the university learns of the family’s addition. Parents can self-report the births through a web form at fhu.edu/lioncub. Upon receipt of the gift, parents are encouraged to share photos on social media using the hashtag #futurefhulion or #fhulioncub and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the items listed above, gift packets will also include messages from members of the FHU faculty who will offer spiritual parenting tips, quotes and relevant scriptures.
“These parents honored us by choosing to make Freed-Hardeman their campus home for four years. They let us be a part of their lives,” Shannon said. “We want them to know they still have ‘family’ in Henderson, a group of people who love them and who thank God for this new baby and the joy he or she will bring.”
Chris Ramey, director of Alumni Engagement, said, "We desire to remain connected to our alumni throughout every phase of their lives. The building of a family is a memorable stage, and whether it is their first child or one of many, we want to celebrate this addition with them."
“Many of these children will hear stories about FHU all of their lives. It seems appropriate to have baby pictures with FHU gear to accompany the stories,” Shannon added. “Years from now, when as college freshmen, they participate in our legacy pinning ceremony, the photos will depict the beginning of their FHU story.”
