A Perfect Match Still—And Always

Jim '56 and Hope Hainer Metzger

For Jim '56 and Hope Hainer Metzger '59, Tower Society members for almost a year, Ohio Wesleyan was an amazing place, filled with eyeopening social and intellectual experiences. OWU provided that special stage upon which great professors such as Ruth Davies and David Jennings made humanities-classics and history come alive...a continuing forum for discussing world events of the day and the importance of serving others...and always, there were opportunities in and out of the classroom for developing lifelong friendships.

It also was at Ohio Wesleyan that Jim and Hope first met, and some years later, married. His vocational calling was to the ministry; hers to a career as an audiologist. But while moving forward with their lives, Jim and Hope have never forgotten to look back with gratitude on their years as OWU students- and to realize their wish to be part of Ohio Wesleyan's continued success and well-being.

The Metzgers decided that OWU's Tower Society-"To Ohio Wesleyan Eternally Remembered," Jim's fondly shared acronym-is their opportunity to support the University's planned giving needs in a personal way. "We owe that to the OWU that has given us so much."

We invite you to be a part of OWU's future, too, and make the University part of your estate planning. Support the Tower Society. Today, Tomorrow, Forever.
