Alums pledge $1 million to MSU to bolster early childhood education

December 19, 2017View for printing

A couple who attended Montana State University in the late 1950s and early 1960s have agreed to give the university $1 million to bolster early childhood education.

The gift from Don and Sue Fisher of Greenwood Village, Colorado, will establish the Sue and Don Fisher Family Professorship in Early Childhood Education within the MSU Department of Health and Human Development in the College of Education, Health and Human Development.

"We are humbled by the Fishers' generosity to Montana State," said MSU President Waded Cruzado. "This strategic gift will build upon our early childhood education program at MSU and serve as the basis for the everyday practice of early literacy and pre-school education reaching thousands of children across the state of Montana."
