Reverend Jean McAnulty Smith ʼ65 first met Lydia Johnson ʼ12, MFA ʼ15 in 2012. Johnson was the first recipient of the Reverend Jean McAnulty Smith Scholarship and the two began a friendship that has persisted for almost a decade. Now, the two women have established a new scholarship together in order to continue passing on the gift of a Butler education to future generations.

Jeffrey Roth '05 arrived at Butler expecting to one day be a high school band director. Instead, he found a new passion: supporting non-profits through philanthropy. He does just that as a Development Officer at the Indiana University Health Foundation–and as the chair of Butler's LGBT Alumni Association. We touched base with Roth to learn more about his time at Butler, his leadership of the LGBT Alumni Association, and his career of supporting communities by helping people find their passions.
