Dr. & Mrs. Cole Donate to Legacy 2020 Campaign
August 21, 2017
The Legacy 2020 Campaign, a capital fundraising project of UA Cossatot Foundation, received a donation from University of Arkansas Cossatot Chancellor Dr. Steve Cole and his wife Leslie Cole.
Room 610 in the Adams Building on the De Queen Campus is now the Dr. Steve and Leslie Cole Hall.
“The gift made by Dr. and Mrs. Cole is a great way to support new programs and inspire others to invest in the communities in Southwest Arkansas,” said UA Cossatot Coordinator of Development Dustin Roberts.
The Legacy 2020 Campaign allows Southwest Arkansas community members to invest in the growth of the college on all three campuses through naming opportunities. Contributing to the Legacy 2020 campaign ensures that the donor’s name is seen on a UA Cossatot campus for years to come.
“Leslie and I believe that a local college is not only the fabric of the community but also the provider of education at an affordable price. Education is the great equalizer. We feel supporting our local college is something we must do to build our community,” said Dr. Cole.
“One of the great aspects of the Legacy 2020 campaign is the flexibility,” said Roberts.
“We have businesses and individuals who are investing an amount in total and others who are paying out annually.”
