Pioneer. Mentor. Friend.
These are just a few of the words that come to mind when we think of Dr. Margaret Downing and her impact at Southern Arkansas University
Southern Arkansas University is pleased to announce a unique opportunity for players, fans, and alumni to recognize the commitment and accomplishments of Dr. Margaret Downing at SAU by joining the Margaret Downing Society.
Your gift of $1,000 or more will secure your membership in this prestigious organization. Members of the Margaret Downing Society will be listed on a permanent plaque at the new Mulerider Softball Field House which will be named for Dr. Downing.
The goal of the Margaret Downing Society is to complete a $100,000 endowment to benefit all women’s athletics at Southern Arkansas University, a fitting way to honor a woman who started or re-started every women’s athletic program at SAU in the modern era.
Your gift will:
- Honor Dr. Downing for 50 years of service to Southern Arkansas University,
- benefit the programs in which Dr. Downing invested so much of her life, and
- ensure there are funds available for the express purpose of advancing women’s athletics.
Join the Downing Society today!
