Indiana University East presented two awards to Rob Tolley and Dr. Gregory Woods for their generous support of the campus and its students during the annual Spirit of Philanthropy Luncheon held November 14 at Forest Hills Country Club. Vice Chancellor for External Affairs Rob Zinkan presented the awards.
In the spirit of giving, the Becky Melton Scholarship has been established at Indiana University East by donors in honor of Melton’s selfless act to donate a kidney to Jerry Wilde, professor of education.
Gifts to the scholarship have generated enough funds to endow the scholarship. To date, IU East has received $13,700 through direct donations and a celebration hosted by Jerry and his wife, Polly Wilde.
