Recent Engineering alum Hagan pays it forward

Kyle Hagan wanted to pay it forward. The MU Engineering alum graduated in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in electrical and computer engineering, and thanks to scholarship support, was able to do so without student loan debt. Since landing a job with Boeing, he has worked to help other students the way others helped him.

Love of Mizzou, family sparks diversity and inclusion gift

Mizzou runs deep in Ken Donohew’s family. The 1967 industrial engineering graduate counts his father, mother, two aunts, an uncle, a second cousin and grandfather as relatives holding an MU degree. Love of Mizzou is a family tradition, and he and wife Ellen Kippel have been longtime fiscal supporters of MU. Paying forward the opportunity for a quality education and resources is a family tradition, too. That’s why Donohew and Kippel established the Major General Jack N. Donohew Fund for Diversity and Inclusion in Engineering as part of Mizzou Giving Day 2019.
