Dr. Walter N. Scott

Make a Gift

Dr. Walter N. Scott

Western Kentucky University received a $500,000 commitment from Dr. Walter N. Scott to establish theDr. Walter N. Scott Scott Professorship in Biology. This gift will be funded through Mr. Scott's estate plan.

Scott, a 1956 WKU graduate, is a physician and professor of biology at New York University in New York, New York.

"My gift to Western is simply a payback for what it gave me. I came there as an old country boy to get trained for medical school, and I was able to finish that training in three years. I owe a great deal to many people at Western."- Dr. Walter N. Scott ('56)

According to Tom Hiles, vice president for Development and Alumni Relations, a gift through an estate plan is an excellent way to make a major commitment to the University. "A donor may stipulate that a certain percentage of his estate, a certain dollar amount, or particular securities or other assets be given to Western," he said. "We are very grateful that Dr. Scott has made this generous leadership commitment. It will be a lasting legacy to his life and his outstanding professional career"
