Reed Gift Supports CivE Undergrads

Richard N. Reed, B.S. ’50, civil engineering, is supporting undergraduate students in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering through the establishment of the Richard N. Reed, Jr. Scholarship Fund. The fund was created with an initial gift of $100,000.

Reed took advantage of the Pension Protection Act of 2006, which allows charitable contributions of up to $100,000 per year.

"I wanted to make a difference and leave my permanent mark on the university, so I created an endowed scholarship for deserving students," Reed said. "Supporting the university has been a grand experience, and I strongly encourage eligible individuals to take advantage of the PPA—in the small window of time that remains—and do something that will help ensure its future."

The first student recipient of this scholarship will be selected in 2008.

"Mr. Reed is one of our most loyal alumni," said Ali Haghani, chair of civil and environmental engineering. "We are grateful for his generosity that will bring great benefits to our students for years to come."
