Featured Testimonial About Creighton University
It’s not about what you get out of it, but what you can give. Creighton gave me a lot, spiritually, academically, and financially. The PFLC is a way for us to be good stewards of the resources that Creighton gave to us.
The Creighton University Parent and Family Leadership Council (PFLC) offers a distinctive partnership to parents who have a vested interest in the education and future of Creighton students.
When their daughter Josie, came to Creighton in 2018, Rich, BA’91, and Aimee, BSPHA’94, Otto were introduced to the PFLC by program director, Judy Pritza.
“The Parent and Family Leadership Council is comprised of dedicated parent ambassadors, like Aimee and Rich, who are devoted to the academic and personal success of all students. I am grateful for our network of parents who enliven our mission and contribute to our excellence and innovation.”
Rich and Aimee are the new PFLC co-chairs and serve as another valuable resource for parents who wish to have a closer connection to the University.
By sharing their “parent perspective” with University leaders, the Ottos and council members help foster a culture that recognizes and celebrates the community and advances the Jesuit mission. Council members socialize with other parents and offer the benefit of their experience, advise University personnel on issues that impact students, and help generate funds for student scholarships.
The mission of the PFLC aligns with the goals the Ottos share with their daughters – Josie, who is now a senior in the Heider College of Business, and their younger daughter, Lillie, who is a sophomore in the College of Art and Sciences. Rich and Aimee say they are thankful for the opportunities that Creighton provides for students and parents to put their values into action.
“Through our involvement, we can demonstrate for Josie and Lillie what it means to be engaged at Creighton. Rich and I can also be a resource for them,” Aimee said.
Rich and Aimee’s commitment to their faith, family, and community has created a strong foundation that helps guide their children to discover their passions and best selves. The PFLC is another opportunity for the Ottos to maintain their values.
“It’s not about what you get out of it, but what you can give.” Rich said. “Creighton gave me a lot, spiritually, academically, and financially. The PFLC is a way for us to be good stewards of the resources that Creighton gave to us.”
