TwiceVolAlum: "Cough up your money Haslam." Seriously? As a UT Alum--twice--you should know better. Consider this portion of a UT news release from a couple of years ago:
Community leaders Jim and Natalie Haslam and the Haslam Family Foundation have given the University of Tennessee $32.5 million, the largest gift ever to the university from individuals.
President John Petersen and Chancellor Loren Crabtree made the announcement Thursday. The Haslams, both 1952 UT graduates, are widely known for their civic and philanthropic work. Jim Haslam is chairman of the board of Pilot Travel Centers LLC and chairman of the board and president of Pilot Corp., both headquartered in Knoxville. A member of the UT Board of Trustees since 1980, he has announced plans to step down when his term expires next year.
The gift will support the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business Administration, the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy, the Athletic Department, and the Haslam Endowment.
The Haslam family has has "coughed up" more money than anyone else for UT. The Haslam Business Building. The new music building under construction. The Haslam Scholars program.
