The School of Anthropology is thrilled to announce a second $25,000 endowment from an alumnus (we announced the Sibley Student Award Endowment last week). We are very grateful to Gary Kaasa (M.A. Arizona, 1972), who recently established the Kaasa Family Anthropology Student Award Endowment. Mr. Kaasa’s gift will be used to fund awards for SoA undergraduate and graduate students. Mr. Kaasa, who is also a Tucson native and a Fulbright Scholar, remains convinced of the importance of Anthropology as a field of study and shared his own experiences in this letter.
Heartfelt thanks, Mr. Kaasa!
