Another bell-ringing is coming to Emporia State University on Friday.
ESU will celebrate what Foundation President DenaSue Potestio calls a "leadership gift" to the university's Now and Forever fundraising campaign. Earmarked for the School of Business, the gift recognizes the work of accounting professor Dr. John Rich, a faculty member at ESU since 1968.
Details on the gift will be released during the announcement beginning at 3 pm at the Sauder Alumni Center. The event is open to the public.
Bell-ringings have become commonplace on campus as the Now and Forever campaign passes $18 million either pledged or donated. Over the past three months, ell-ringing events have been held for athletic and music scholarship announcements as well as to celebrate the best fundraising year the Foundation has enjoyed.
