Each year at our annual Fairmount Society celebration, we honor two individuals who have contributed to the success of Wichita State University.  The Fairmount Founders' Award, first presented in 1988, is given for outstanding service and exceptional contributions, which consistently manifest the values and ideals of the founder of Fairmount College.  The Board of Trustees' Award, first presented in 1989, is given to a person who has made significant contributions to the vital and rewarding partnership that exists between Wichita State University and the community.

Bob White is our 2018 Fairmount Founders' Award recipient. Bob's support for Wichita State has been reflected in his university involvement and philanthropy for more than 30 years. We hope you will enjoy watching this brief video about Bob. 

Bill Moore is our 2018 Board of Trustees' Award receipient. Bill, a 1974 alum, gives back to his alma mater and his community by donating his time, talent and resources. We hope you will enjoy watching this brief video about Bill.
