Major gift boosts Reynolds Hall construction, student success and faculty support for WVU Chambers College
Future generations of students at the West Virginia University School of Nursing will have access to pivotal peer tutoring services thanks to a $30,000 endowment gift from a faculty member and her husband.
Associate Professor of Nursing Kari Sand-Jecklin developed and oversees the Peer Tutoring Program, which provides personalized instruction to help struggling students succeed. She and her husband, David Jecklin, have made generous contributions to bolster the program since its inception in 2017. Their latest gift, made in conjunction with WVU’s fourth Day of Giving, will ensure the program continues following Sand-Jecklin’s planned retirement in about a year.
