A recent major contribution of $100,000 from Wichita State University alumnus Britt M. Brown to the WSU Foundation has created the Britt M. Brown Scholarship in Business.
"I created the scholarship to give financially challenged students a chance to live up to their potential and excel in business," Brown said.
An inspiration for the generous donation to the university is his son Ruse, who graduated from Wichita State in 2007 and now works alongside him at UBS Financial Services.
"It's a gift that demonstrates his passion for business and student education," said Terre Johnson, WSU Foundation vice president for major gifts.
Brown graduated Cum Laude in 1974, receiving a Bachelor of Business Administration. He served on the WSU Foundation Board of Governors (now known as the National Advisory Council) for 12 years. Brown is a member of the WSU Foundation Society of 1895 and a life member of the WSU Alumni Association.
Hired by UBS as an investment executive, Brown worked his way up until he became senior vice president of investments. Barron's magazine recognized Brown's exceptional business and leadership skills, naming him as one of America's Top 1,000 Financial Advisors in 2012.
