My alma mater is The Ohio State University.  I’m a life member of the alumni association.  And, like many other alums, I’m on a lot of the university’s mailing lists.

On February 16, 2011, I (along with other Alumni, students, faculty, and staff) received an email from Ohio State University  president E. Gordon Gee.

The email contained a jaw-dropping announcement!  A 100 million dollar gift to The Ohio State University from Les Wexner, founder of The Limited. It’s the largest philanthropic gift in university history.

Dr. Gee correctly characterized this 100 million dollar gift as “a transformative moment in the history of this university.”

It was a wonderful day for the university and buckeyes everywhere.  You can read more about it here.

Thank you , Mr.  Wexner.  God bless you.
