|On Friday, October 17, Chett Pritchett, executive director of the Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA), was honored by his alma mater, the United Methodist-related West Virginia Wesleyan College, for his service to the school, Church, and world.
Pritchett graduated from West Virginia Wesleyan in 1999 and recognized his call to ministry while a student there. He credits his personal and professional success to Wesleyan’s emphasis on critical thinking and local and global citizenship. His work in the areas of social justice was cultivated during his college years through work on LGBT rights and environmental justice.
His passion for his alma mater shows through as he promotes the College in any way he can. He assists with hosting alumni events; he returns to campus to speak with students in community engagement and religious life; he is an annual donor; and, he is a member of the Reger Society for planned giving.
In his service to Wesleyan, to others and within the United Methodist Church, Chett follows John Wesley’s ideals of “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”
