Nathan Shotwell Society

The Nathan Shotwell Planned Giving Society, established in 1997, recognizes and honors those who have made provisions for West Liberty University through a bequest in a will or other estate-planning arrangement.

The Society is named for the Reverend Dr. Nathan Shotwell, who founded the institution in 1837 and served as its leader until 1854.  Dr. Shotwell is credited with the establishment of the high academic standards to which the university continues to aspire.
