The University of Memphis wishes to acknowledge the generous gifts of its donors, including the following:

The Loewenberg School of Nursing received $82,000 in January from the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation Scholarship Program for the support of deserving young women enrolled in the School’s undergraduate and graduate programs. Since 1976, the Foundation has provided the University nearly $800,000 in scholarship funding.

Chuck Bullock (JD ’95), a bankruptcy attorney in Southfield, Mich., wanted to give back to the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law and to recognize his former professor and mentor, Judge David S. Kennedy (BS ’67, JD ’70). Bullock established the Honorable David S. Kennedy Bankruptcy Achievement Award as a way to support the study of bankruptcy law and to recognize excellence by a student in that area. Kennedy has been an adjunct professor at the Law School since 1992 and is currently president of the Law Alumni Chapter.

Richard R. Ranta, founding dean of the College of Communications and Fine Arts, came to then-Memphis State University in 1972. During his decades as the guiding force for the growth of the College, Ranta has also been a leader through his personal giving to the University. He was recently recognized for being a consecutive donor for more than 35 years. Ranta has supported every department and special center within the College, in addition to the University Libraries and the Tiger Scholarship Fund.
