Alumni, current students and their families, along with staff and faculty, connect over light fare and drinks, and share stories of the experiences they had outside the classroom that influenced their education.
The evening also includes a few words from FLC’s retiring Vice President for Student Affairs, Glenna Sexton. For 20 years, Glenna has been a passionate supporter of student development opportunities. At this event, FLC will be unveiling the Glenna Sexton Student Development Fund in her honor. The fund will be used to remove financial barriers for students that need assistance to attend conferences, conduct a project abroad or in the field, or other such co-curricular activities.

Donate to the Glenna Sexton Student Development Fund to support student participation in co-curricular activities.
In January 1998, Glenna Witt Sexton showed up at Fort Lewis College to take on the role of supporting students in their student success, including academic pursuits, co-curricular learning, and wildest dreams. Twenty years later, Glenna is retiring, having created a legacy of service and commitment to her profession and generations of FLC students.
Her collegiate journey began at Emporia State University in Kansas, where she first fell in love with the mission of mentorship and advocacy for Student Affairs. She’s since worked in higher education institutions spanning from the Great Plains to Wisconsin, Texas, and North Carolina till she found her home in Durango.
Throughout her career in Student Affairs, Glenna has been uncompromising in her professionalism, voice for diversity, and sincere joy in working with students. While she’s worked with seven different college presidents and more than 20 student government executive teams during her years at The Fort, Glenna’s focus has always been on seeing students reach their full potential.
Many a student will forever remember Glenna helping them improve their student organizations, compete in sports on the national stage, or attend a professional conference – experiences they might never have had, if not for her support.
Glenna has given unselfishly of her time and treasure--whether volunteering at Pow Wow or donating her personal funds to students’ experiences. She has had a positive impact on students’ success and their futures. Her impact is immeasurable, and we all cherish her contributions, her leadership, and her friendship. We wish her the best of luck in this next chapter!
