Dave Lehman (Ph.D. ’74) believes that scholarships are key to helping students pursue an education necessary for meaningful careers. As a reflection of this belief, Dave is offering to match any gift to this fund at $1.50 for every $1 (up to $100,000) contributed to the John C. and Marian B. Maxwell Endowed Undergraduate Scholarship in Geological Sciences this year.

“Dr. Maxwell was not only a great teacher and scholar, but for me personally he was instrumental in opening up academic and professional opportunities.”

Dave hopes that others will share his conviction and honor Dr. Maxwell’s legacy by paying it forward. The match is in place through Dec. 31, 2015.
