Graduating Seniors Give Back to Haas

Haas undergraduate seniors donated $11,603 this year to the school as part of the Senior Gift Campaign.

A total of 142 individuals, including 124 seniors, contributed to the campaign. Twenty-two donors joined the Haas Leadership Society by giving $250 or more.

All told, the amount raised for the Senior Gift Campaign reached $47,779, thanks to gifts from alumni Brad Howard, BS 79; Steve Etter, BS 83, MBA 89, also a Haas lecturer; Dean Rich Lyons, BS 82; and a new alumni challenge hosted by Paul and Stacy Jacobs. Paul Jacobs, BS 84 and PhD 89 (Engineering), is CEO of Qualcomm; Stacy Jacobs, his wife, earned her bachelor's in the College of Letters and Science in 1984 and a doctor of optometry (OD) from the School of Optometry in 1989.

Tala Beigi and Kristen Lee, both BS 12, served as the campaign's co-chairs.
