A gift from retired Shell engineer and executive Tom Botts and his wife, Shelley, to the University of Wyoming supports the head of the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences. This gift was matched by the UW Foundation.
This gift establishes the Thomas and Shelley Botts Department Head in Civil Engineering. The purpose of this endowed position is to recruit and retain a strong department head by garnering the attention of nationally recognized scholars or industry leaders.
Two University of Wyoming faculty members have earned the prestigious UW Foundation Stewardship Award. They are Cindy Price Schultz, head of the Department of Communication and Journalism, and John Kaszuba, the John and Jane Wold Centennial Chair in Energy.
The UW Foundation Stewardship Award recognizes the leadership of UW faculty members who excel in the relationship-building and stewardship of alumni and donors through effective use of private gifts, engaging former students in the activities of the university and a commitment to strong external relationships for the betterment of UW.
The towering legacy of a Wyoming family has been further honored with the creation of a deanship in the University of Wyoming College of Business -- the H.A. “Dave” True Jr. Family College of Business Deanship.
