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.

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.
