Timothy and Carolyn Thyreen

Timothy and Carolyn Thyreen are passionate about conservation and education. Tim, president of Waynesburg University since 1990, and Carolyn explain that their commitment to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy is rooted in their “deep sense of stewardship and respect for all of God’s creation.” Tim and Carolyn have been residents of Waynesburg, Pa. for more than 40 years and have always appreciated the beauty of its natural resources of land and water. This deep commitment prompted Tim to join the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy’s board of directors in 2003.

Tim and Carolyn’s desire to make a bigger impact on the Conservancy’s future through the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy’s Our Shared Legacy campaign prompted their decision to make both an outright gift and a planned gift through their wills. “We are deeply committed to helping conserve the natural beauty of Western Pennsylvania,” Tim explained. “The Conservancy transforms the region on many fronts — land and water conservation, and community gardens and greenspaces. I am pleased to play a role in shaping the region’s future through serving on the Conservancy’s board of directors and through financial giving.”

Our success will be our collective legacy, a testament to foresight and commitment to the natural resources entrusted to us.
