A loyal group of WKU Public Radio supporters has combined efforts to offer a special matching gift opportunity today during Morning Edition. These supporters are offering to match the first $4,100 of gifts this morning in honor of the memory of Dr. Jim Flynn.
Dr. Flynn received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from WKU and returned to the school as a faculty member in 1972—where he taught and worked for 40 years.
Dr. Flynn served as Head of the English Department and was interim Head of the Art Department twice, and led numerous Study Abroad classes to England, Ireland, and Italy. He was awarded the University Public Service Award in 1984.
Dr. Flynn passed away in December, and a group of his friends who are also WKU Public Radio supporters has chosen to honor his memory with a matching gift during this week of spring fundraising.
Any contribution you make Wednesday during Morning Edition is being matched dollar-for-dollar, thanks to the incredible generosity of this group of anonymous donors.
Please renew your membership gift this morning, or give for the first time, by pledging your support to WKU Public Radio by calling 1-800-599-WKYU, or by giving online.
