The Spirit of the Gift project is an effort to catalog the histories behind the hundreds of endowed scholarships, fellowships and non-scholarship funds at Wichita State University. Each biographical sketch strives to reveal interesting details about who created these gifts and why. They also are a way for donors to share their personal beliefs, professional philosophies, inspirations and aspirations. In many cases, they are a way for donors to give back to the university that gave so much to them.
