FULTON, Mo. - Westminster College alum, Kent Mueller, announced on Tuesday that he would be donating $3 million to the school so that the Westminster athletic stadium could become a reality.
"Judy and I have been blessed in life, and one of our greatest joys has been to help give Westminster students the best academic experience possible," says Mueller. "Westminster gave me the knowledge, tools, and drive to enthusiastically pursue everything I needed to be successful in my personal and professional life, and I want to give back so future generations of our students can receive the same excellent education I received here."
Phase I of the project, which includes the turf, scoreboard and lights, will be completed in time for the 2018 football season.
Phase II will include the stadium structure, including bleachers, press box, concessions and rest rooms.
The rest of the contribution will fund other athletic facility enhancements in Phase III.
"On behalf of the entire Westminster community, I want to thank Kent and Judy Mueller for their strong support of our students, programs and facilities," says President Lamkin. "The Mueller's were leaders during my first tenure as President of Westminster with their transformational gifts to make this a beautiful campus, and now they are stepping up to the plate once more to provide the quality athletic facilities our student athletes deserve. This is great news for our students and prospective students."
