We support our student-athletes.
Bill Graham ‘62
Trustee Bill Graham ‘62, whose $5.6 million gift was the major impetus behind the recent restoration of wrestling to varsity status, is passionate about the role the sport of wrestling played in his undergraduate education.
He credits those learned traits – tenacity, striving to be better every day and recognizing that hard work is the key to reaching ambitious goals – with helping him succeed in the business world.
While his gift to Bucknell helped bring back the sport he loves, he has also been touched by what it has done for women's athletics, particularly the Graham Field complex, which is now the home venue for the Bison field hockey and women's lacrosse teams. Out of his generosity, this donor of action has opened doors of opportunity to many student-athletes.
