Jinx Tucker Leaves Legacy to EWC
May 19, 2005
(Torrington, WY) Eastern Wyoming College was recently bequeathed a gift from the late Jinx Tucker, which has been designated for student scholarships.
In 1995, Jinx established the Mae Tucker Memorial Scholarship in honor of his mother. His recent bequest will be placed in that same endowment, and the scholarship will be named the Tucker Memorial Scholarship.
Karen Tucker, wife of the late Jinx Tucker, meets with President Jack Bottenfield and Director of Development Lynnea Bartlett about her husband's gift.
"Jinx, an EWC alumnus, was a strong supporter of Eastern Wyoming College for a very long time, and I think he would be pleased to know that his generous gift will go directly to EWC students," added Lynnea Bartlett, EWC Director of Development.
