On Friday from 2-4 p.m., the Senior Class Gift committee hosted an Albion Everywhere celebration in the lobby and living room of the Kellogg Center (KC).

The event, set up by Senior Class Gift Advisor Jordan Revenaugh ‘21 had free cupcakes, stickers, a banner for seniors to sign and a fundraiser called “Pie the President (or a peer).” The fundraiser was set up to raise money for this year’s senior gift, The Cutler Center Cap and Gown Rental Program. Between 3-4 p.m., Webster pledged on the senior class gift Instagram page to match every dollar spent towards pieing someone.

“A couple of weeks back we were talking about different fundraiser ideas and we came up with the idea to do pie the president and Wayne said he would absolutely do it,” Revenaugh said. “For the seniors, we had a sign-up, and any senior who volunteered gets points towards graduation.”

Students interested in pieing the president paid $3, staff and facilities who were interested paid $10.

“I agreed because if it gets students to think about the importance of giving back to Albion, then it’s worth doing,” Webster said.
