Giving back moves
our college forward
More than six decades after graduating, Thomas R. Schidel continues to appreciate the quality education he received at The University of Akron – and the many opportunities it provided him.
To demonstrate his gratitude, he recently established The Thomas R. Schidel Scholarship Fund in Engineering, which will provide annual awards to students enrolled in the College of Engineering at The University of Akron who demonstrate academic success and financial need. Schidel hopes his gift will inspire these students to make the most of their education and to give back one day as well. Full story.
