Spanier Reinforces Commitment to University
Graham and Sandra Spanier have pledged an additional $700,000 to the University, for a grand total of $1,000,000. To put that figure into perspective, in five years that money would accumulate enough interest to annually provide full scholarships for seven students. Their gift’s impact will only grow over time.
This gift is not their first. Check out this article from 1996, when Spanier donated $100,000 to the University.
Joe and Sue Paterno have also donated quite a bit of money to the University. Moreover, JoePa draws a much smaller salary than a coach at a comparable school so his donation is that much more impressive.
