For Indiana University East the past year has brought many celebrations, accomplishments and memorable moments. The campus experienced a record number of graduates who joined an alumni family now numbering over 9,000, celebrated the grand opening of the Student Events and Activities Center, and remembered the legacy of Chancellor Emeritus David Fulton who passed away.
Paul and Pat Lingle have a strong connection to the history and development of Indiana University East.
Since IU East was established in 1971, the Lingles have supported the campus. Today, they continue to be a part of IU East by providing a $700,000 gift to the new Student Events and Activities Center.
Both graduated in June 2014 and are freshmen at IU East this fall. Truette is a graduate of Centerville Senior High School and Lemar is a graduate of Richmond High School.
