RICHMOND, Ky. (WTVQ) – Eastern Kentucky University showcased the generosity of their alumni these past months, saying they’ve had the best July-December numbers since 198.

And it’s not just planes that alumni are donating. Nick Perlick, vice president for development and alumni relations said the school had been gifted a twin engine plane donated to aid in the Aviation Program’s flight training, and a “significant” scholarship gift from the estate of an alumnus.

He added that helping new generations of EKU students has always been a top priority among donors.

“Scholarships and other forms of student support are our number one overall fundraising priority, through which we are able to help more deserving students fulfill their dream of earning an EKU degree,” Perlick said.
