During his remarkable career as Professor, Dean and President of UW, H.T. Person touched lives, inspired his students and shaped the University of Wyoming College of Engineering and Applied Science.He was beloved and respected by his colleagues, his peers and most importantly by “his” students.He was called by some the “finest teacher I ever had.” His students remembered his ability to make a complicated subject understandable. Affectionately known as “Prof.,”he was a mentor, father figure and friend — a teacher who listened, supported and cared.
Those who remember the impact that H.T. Person had on their lives, believe that an endowment bearing his name is the single best tribute to his career, life and memory. The H.T. Person Memorial Endowment for the College of Engineering and Applied Science has been established to honor this outstanding educator, who has touched so many lives.
UW President Tom Buchanan has designated the H.T. Person Memorial Endowment as an endowment in memory of H.T. Person, thereby making gifts to this endowment matchable by the state once the $50,000 in new giving threshold is met. This provides UW’s College of Engineering and Applied Science with an outstanding opportunity to increase the endowment principal through the doubling of the gift values and thereby expand its mission in educating tomorrow’s leaders.
Please consider giving a gift to keep H.T. Person's memory alive through his endowment by sending your H.T. Person Endowment designated gift to the UW Foundation, 1200 East Ivinson Avenue, Laramie, Wyoming, 82070-4159. Thank you for your ongoing support of the UW College of Engineering and Applied Science.
