A key to our continued success is support from our alumni and friends through the Chesley H. Husson, Sr. Society.

Named in memory of "Chief" Husson, the Society has been established to recognize and honor donors who have generously provided for Husson University through a planned gift such as a bequest, trust, annuity, life insurance policy, retirement assets, real estate, or other deferred gift. The Society's name honors the man who gave Husson both his name and its nonprofit independent status. It is especially appropriate when you consider that Chief's own planned gift made it all possible.

The Chief, like many of our alumni and friends, came from humble beginnings; but through hard work and persistence made a better world for himself, his family and community. He was a "people" person who walked the streets of Bangor stopping store-to-store to find his students a place to live or work. He had an ability to attract outstanding teachers and administrators to the University. He was an individual who made lasting friendships and who turned to these friends for guidance and support. Chief was dedicated to building our school and making it a respected academic institution.

Members of the Husson Society are forward-thinkers like Chief, committed to action in the fields of philanthropy and education. Society members understand the critical need to make a demonstrated commitment to strengthening Husson University's financial future. Society members are dedicated to ensuring the continued vitality and development of the college from one generation to the next.
