Seriously Buzz? You’re going to leave this story hanging around all day so I have to post it:
The donor, Ernest “Ernie” Scheller Jr., graduated from Tech in 1952 with a degree in industrial management. Officials renamed the business school the Ernest Scheller Jr. College of Business in his honor.
Georgia Tech President Bud Peterson said the donation had “an unprecedented impact” on the business school.
The gift, when combined with other donations through a corresponding dollar-for-dollar challenge, will more than double the business school’s endowment. Scheller’s donation will be complete in 2013.
The college has used the money to add nine endowed faculty chairs and professorships, six graduate fellowships and 37 undergraduate scholarships, Dean Steve Salbu said.
O.K. Tech folks: If you add 37 undergrads who are all female, what does that do to the ratio?
