Ann Tyler graduated from Lasell College nearly 50 years ago. When asked why she chose to leave a gift to Lasell College in her will, she sent the following moving statement:
"When the Heritage Society was established in 1991 I felt it was very important to demonstrate my support for the ongoing future of Lasell’s legacy.
Lasell’s leaders have forged ahead with a bold vision for educating students in the 21st century and beyond. It has never been all about the classroom. Lasell has listened to its students, alumni, and the community while maintaining Lasell’s unique heritage.
We all have the opportunity to make a difference. Hopefully, I will be an example to my family. I left a gift to Lasell College in my will for the students of tomorrow who need support. THEY ARE OUR FUTURE."
