The University has to a large extent defined our professional lives," Thomas Scott, psychology, said. "My wife, Bonnie, and I want to recognize how important the University has been to us over the years. We want not only to promote the University and give it greater name recognition at meetings and professional conferences, but also to give back in a more concrete way.
"We began our second five-year commitment last year. By designating our contribution, we are able to see our money be of use in areas that we find important."
"My husband and I," Bonnie Kime Scott, English, added, "chose to designate our contribution for the library, the Professional Theatre Training Program (PTTP) and for travel funds for graduate students in psychology and English. We like to invest and support areas of the University we believe in."
Thomas Scott teaches general psychology, a course in brain and behavior and graduate-level seminars.
A neuroscientist, he conducts research on the neurophysiology of taste and the control of appetite. He started at the University in 1970.
Bonnie Kime Scott is the director of graduate studies in the Department of English, and teaches at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
Her research focus is on modernist literature, Irish studies and women's studies. She came to the University in 1975.
