My most memorable moments with the College Heights Foundation always occurred in the striped, wing-back chair in the corner of Dr. Downing’s office. Many hours in my earlier years with CHF were spent listening and learning from one of the most passionate “Westerners” I’ve ever known, Dr. Dero Downing. He always spoke so genuinely about the mission of this Foundation and the importance of being good stewards to our donors and also to the students and fellow staff members on this campus. Not only did I learn a great deal from him about the history of the College Heights Foundation, but I also learned life lessons I will always carry with me. –Beth Keltner
