Paul Kriese has endowed one of the largest gifts from a faculty member to Indiana University East and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS).
Doug Brenneke puts it simply.
It just fits for Belden to help Indiana University East complete its longtime vision of building a vibrant events center that will serve the campus and the community.
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.
Richmond businessman Kirit Patel has donated a building to Indiana University East. The 9,040-square-foot office building is located on Richmond’s east side at 423 and 425 Commerce Road. The gift of property has an appraised value of $498,800.
