Beth Howard Stubbs, Class of 2000, has been named as the new Chair of the President's Club, Westminster's most prestigious annual giving society. The President's Club is a recognition society for loyal alumni, parents and friends who provide leadership support for the College through the gifts of $1,250 or above ever year.
"I am very excited about the opportunity to serve as the President's Club Chairperson. My time at Westminster provided me with a well-rounded liberal arts education, life-long relationships and a foundation to be able to critically think in those necessary situations, " says Stubbs.
"All of this was made possible by the generous scholarships and support I received. At that time, I vowed that as soon as I was able, I would try to help offer those same opportunities to future Westminster students. That time has now arrived, and I am looking forward to working with the staff and fellow alumni on how we can best support the College to ensure that the same opportunities we received are here for generations to come."
Beth is one of Westminster's most active and generous young alumni. As a member of the President's Club since 2007, she has given generously in support of plant operations, the tennis program, endowed scholarships, the Undergraduate Scholars Forum and the Alumni Council, an organization she served as President. She has also included Westminster in her estate plans.
"Beth is a perfect match for her new duties as President's Club Chairperson as we begin writing the next chapter in Westminster College's wonderful history," says Westminster President Dr. George B. Forsythe. "Beth's extraordinary leadership and personal dedication to Westminster have been reflected in her investment of time, talent and treasure over many years. I am truly excited that Beth has chosen to serve in this important role."
After leaving Westminster, Stubbs earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy. She has served as a student preceptor and adjunct professor of pharmaceutical compounding for the University of Missouri at Kansas City for the past five years. She is a partner in Kilgore's Medical Pharmacy in Columbia, MO, a business which recorded annual sales of nearly $50 million this past year.
