Boeing donates $1 million to CWU

The donation was to commemorate the career of retired president, CEO and former vice chairman Ray Conner.

On April 25 it was announced that Boeing donated $1 million to the Central Washington University Foundation.

The donation was to commemorate the career of CWU alumnus and retired president, CEO and former vice chairman, Ray Conner.

The money will go toward supporting the university’s Ray and Katie Conner Endowed Scholarship, a media release stated. The scholarship benefits students from the Highline School District who are pursuing STEM degrees at Central.

“I attribute much of my success to hard work, preparation, and leadership—all characteristics that I honed during my time at CWU,” said Conner, a 2010 CWU Distinguished Alumnus, in the release. “One of the best ways I can give back is to provide students with the same opportunity I had.”
