West Texas A&M University revealed a gift on the 26th, and this one will impact future female athletes for years to come.
Judy Fugate, an Amarillo resident and former Lady Buff, has given $1.85 million to WT Athletics to create the Lady Buff Scholarship Endowment in her name.
This scholarship will be able to help one athlete in every woman’s sport in its inaugural year, as well as provide program support for all women’s athletics throughout WT.
Michael McBroom, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, expressed thanks for the hard work she did during her time as a buff to set the stage for all future Lady Buffs.
He went on to share his excitement for the future of the program and the development of future women athletes.
This gift was given as part of the OneWest Campaign and has gathered $110 Million out of its $125 Million dollar goal before its first year.
