Fairmount Society Celebration
The 2019 gala drew more than 200 guests

The annual Fairmount Society gala, held May 9 at Mark Arts, honors WSU’s most generous supporters. This year’s dinner drew more than 200 guests for an evening of mixing, mingling and recognizing 17 new Life Members. Longtime WSU supporters Jane McHugh, recipient of the Fairmount Founders’ Award, and Debbie Gann, recipient of the Board of Trustees’ Award, also were honored during the event.

A special tribute recognized the legacy of WSU President John Bardo, who died on March 12. Among those attending the event was his wife, Deborah Bardo, and members of her family. Memorials in President Bardo’s honor may be made to the Deborah J. Bardo Scholarship, which was the couple’s philanthropic priority during their tenure at Wichita State.
