The Council for the
Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) is recognizing West Virginia University for exemplary fundraising programs and activities.
A $767,000 donation from the Asphalt Pavement Association of West Virginia will fund the creation of a new endowed faculty chair within West Virginia University’s Benjamin M. Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources. The gift will be paired with donations made earlier by the group that funded a faculty professorship.
In 1993, the APAWV, which is comprised of multiple contractors from around the state, created an endowment with the WVU Foundation to fund an asphalt technology professorship. Professor John Zaniewski has held that position since 1997. After Zaniewski announced late last year that he would be retiring, board members of the APAWV voted to pledge additional money to raise the position from an endowed professorship to an endowed chair.
West Virginia University alumni Curtis H. “Hank” Barnette and his wife, Joanne, have made a significant gift to upgrade the Barnette Board of Governors Room located on the second floor of the Erickson Alumni Center.
