W&L clinches fund-raising goal of $50 million for athletic facilities.
Nearly 700 alumni returned to campus to celebrate classes with graduation years ending in three and eight. This year's reunion classes collectively raised more than $1.5 million for the Annual Fund and committed a total of $5.2 million in current gifts and future pledges.
W&L will name its new indoor athletics and recreation facility for Duchossois '44 in recognition of his leadership support of the project.
The gift supports the education — both theoretical and practical — of budding journalists.
