In the future, Michael Lofton hopes to award scholarships for students to attend UD and receive the transformative education he credits for his commitment to serving others.

What he can't give in financial assistance now, he contributes in service. Lofton served two terms as St. Louis alumni chapter president and is currently vice chair of the Chapter Council for the National Alumni Association and a member of the board of directors.

"I'll never be able to repay UD for what it's given me in terms of a top-notch education, as well as providing me with relationships and experiences that I can never replace," he said.

As a student, Lofton was vice president of the Student Government Association, co-chair of Red Scare, president of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, chair of the United Way student campaign and co-founder of the campus chapter of the NAACP. He also served as an assistant coach for the boys' basketball teams at Oakwood High School.

Lofton currently works as the director of university accounts and partnerships at Welcometocollege.com, a company founded by Justin Bayer '01, and is an assistant boys basketball coach at Clayton High School in St. Louis. He also serves on the steering committee of the United Way's GenNext program for young professionals.
