Recognition of Cumulative Gifts of $10,000-$24,999
Named in honor of Missouri native and
Truman alumnus General John J. Pershing, the Pershing Circle is a
prestigious giving club that recognizes cumulative gifts of $10,000 to
$24,999 made to Truman State University.
Prior to becoming one of the most famous
officers in the United States Army, Pershing attended Kirksville Normal
School (now Truman State University), where he received his teaching
degree in June 1880. He died July 15, 1948, and was buried in Arlington
National Cemetery with the highest military honors.
Members of the Pershing Circle are
invited to the Foundation Banquet held on campus each year.
