Lenora N. McGregor Endowed Scholarship

Lenora N. McGregor's interest in Wichita State University began while she was taking Shakespeare courses through the English department. Her husband, the late Edward McGregor, was a Wichita lumber dealer. In 1963, through her estate, the Lenora N. McGregor Endowed Scholarship was established for those students enrolled full or part time at WSU. Her generous gift represents her faith in the university.
