We are thankful for those who have made an estate gift to Regis University. Here are their stories.
Bill J. Meurer
Bill J. Meurer says his experience at Regis transformed him and shaped his future. He's giving back so that others might be transformed, too.
A Legacy Through Scholarship
Margaret Cloonan, LHC '52, loved the city of Denver and planted roots here in college. Her love of learning lead her to make a gift to Regis so others could have the same opportunity to start their journeys in Denver.
Give the Gift of a Jesuit Education
Regis University gave Dr. Patrick Maher, RC '77, the necessary skills to launch a successful career in general surgery and taught him how to look beyond personal achievement to focus on helping others succeed. During his time on campus, he worked as an emergency aid assistant under a Denver-area doctor and was an assistant teacher for two courses.
Give Back to the Institution
To celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary and give back to the institution that made such an impact on their lives, Ronald S. and Mary Brockway chose to create a Regis legacy. Having taught at Regis, Ronald full-time and Mary part-time, they have been deeply influenced by Regis' commitment to providing a quality education for the leaders of tomorrow.
Philip and Theresa Gamble
Looking to modernize his professional skills, Phil, a systems engineer at a global aerospace and defense company, completed his Masters of Science in Computer Information Technology in 2004 after more than 20 years in information technology, while Teri, an executive assistant at a private equity firm in downtown Denver, fulfilled a personal accomplishment and professional goal by finishing her undergraduate degree in business administration in 2006.
Janet Houser, Ph.D. and Floyd Ott
Nearly 15 years ago, Janet Houser began working at Regis and hasn't looked back. Originally from Kansas, Janet was introduced to Regis University shortly after moving to Colorado to finish her Ph.D. She was invited to deliver several guest lectures on campus and ultimately fell in love with the idea of "igniting the light of the mind."
Looking to the Future: Tim & Carmen Willard
Articulate communication and independent thinking are among the many influential lessons Tim, RC '65, and Carmen, LHC '65, Willard learned during their time in college. Their values-based education has stayed with them throughout their lives and they see it as the key to an informed and responsible society.
Investing in the Leaders of Tomorrow
To Ben and Monique (Orthober) Schafer, the Regis experience is more than just schooling. The 2006 Regis graduates met and fell in love at the University. Today Ben serves as the director of sales for a local technology and manufacturing company and Monique is a software consultant implementing Workday.
Impacting Generations to Come
When your heart is grateful, your actions will show it. That’s why Tim Lewis, RC ’13 is taking action today to help future generations of students learn and grow at Regis like he did.
