Dr. Joseph Stoltman and Dr. Gillian Stoltman have given the university $100,000 to establish a new endowment which will fund scholarships for students in Geography, Resource Management, and potentially other programs on campus, too. Joseph is a 1962 graduate of our department and a longtime professor in the Department of Geography at Western Michigan University, where he is now a University Distinguished Scholar. Gillian has a Ph.D. in Virology from University College London. In explaining their remarkable gift to CWU, Joseph noted the great significance that former geography professors (then at Central Washington State College) including Robert Funderburk, Martin Kaatz, and Otto Jakubek had in fostering a love for exploration and in helping to launch him on his career. We are deeply grateful to the Stoltmans and to the other alumni and emeritus faculty whose generosity makes a degree at Central possible for some of our best current and future students.
