Giving Back: Tom Lester


Estate planning allows us to give something back in a way that fits within our upcoming retirement plans.

The College of Engineering possesses a long history of loyal donors whose forward-thinking generosity led them to remember the college in their estate.

Former dean Tom Lester knows the power of deferred philanthropy. His own estate plan, which he is developing with his wife, Frances, is geared toward supporting the Thomas W. Lester Scholarship program—the college’s undergraduate scholarship program that was renamed in his honor in 2011.

For more information about including the college in your estate plan contact Jeff Snow at (859) 257-9191 or
