Through a bequest from the estate of a Fairmont State alumnus, the Fairmont State Foundation has received a gift of $730,000.
William Claude “Bill” Waters, who passed away in July of last year at the age of 93, designated the money to be used to provide scholarship opportunities for students at the institution. Waters’ cousin, Arden Fisher, served as the executor of his estate.
Previously, Waters also made contributions totaling more than $63,000 to the university.
