Oklahoma family honors Hargis with $1 million endowed chair

Wednesday, May 7, 2008

The Rainbolt family of Oklahoma City is honoring Oklahoma State President Burns Hargis with a $500,000 gift to establish an endowed chair within the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.  The chair will be valued at $1 million thanks to a dollar for dollar match by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

“I am overwhelmed and honored by this generous gift from the Rainbolt family,” Hargis said.  “I greatly appreciate Gene’s confidence in me and his belief in the vital work being done by our agriculture college.  This gift will strengthen the excellent work already being done by our faculty.”
