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.
Graham's new gift to Bucknell helped fund the Graham Building, a new facility for wrestling, Bucknell Student Health and the Counseling & Student Development Center.
His generosity also funded the Graham Field complex, the home venue for the Bison field hockey and women's lacrosse teams. This donor of action has opened doors of opportunity to many student-athletes.
