Close-Knit Community, Family Experience Prompts Gift
Robert and Mercedes McNutt were first introduced to Virginia Wesleyan in 2006 when their oldest son, Josh, earned a scholarship to attend the College. Not long after, their younger son, Matt, chose to attend VWC as well.
In the last nine years, they say VWC has become an extension of their family. Because of the personal guidance, financial assistance and quality education their sons received – in addition to the inclusiveness they felt as members of the Parents’ Council – the McNutts felt compelled to help provide a similar experience for future generations through an estate gift to Virginia Wesleyan.
Over the years, the McNutt family has developed lasting relationships with several VWC faculty and staff members. Professor of Religious Studies Craig Wansink served as a mentor for Josh, who graduated in 2010 and now works as a youth director with the United Methodist Church. Matt received valuable guidance from Professor of Philosophy Larry Hultgren, who encouraged his participation in the College’s PORTfolio Program. Both sons had the chance give back through valuable service opportunities led by Director of Community Service Diane Hotaling.
By choosing to include Virginia Wesleyan in their estate plans, the McNutt family will leave a lasting legacy and become part of the permanent life of the College.
