State of the University Address - Founders' Day 2012
President Jack Thomas

Let Us Not Forget

Good afternoon.

As we observe Founders' Day here at Western Illinois University, let us not forget those individuals who have gone on before us, those individuals who have set a good example that paved the way for what we have become today. Our founders would be proud of our growth, from 1899 to 2012. They would be proud to know that we continue to be an epicenter for education and a fortress of activity regionally, nationally, and internationally.
