Ohio State Lima building and scholarships benefit from generous gift
Unverferth family presents gift at next Board of Trustees meeting
The Unverferth family will announce a $50,000 pledge to support student scholarships and the future student and community center on campus during the next Ohio State Lima Board of Trustees meeting at 4:30 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011, in the Public Service Board Room.
“We are thrilled that our family and our business are able to help Ohio State Lima grow and change to meet the needs of the students and our community,” said Jim Unverferth. “Scholarship support has always been a family passion, and we enjoy knowing that we are helping young people attend the University. Supporting the future student and community center is also important to us. The campus needs a place for students and the community to gather, and we are happy to make a gift that will help the facility become a reality.”
The generous gift is from Jim and Joni Unverferth and Burtons Ridge Assisted Living, Lima Manor, Shawnee Manor, Roselawn Manor, Wapakoneta Manor and Heritage Home Health Care. Jim Unverferth is president of HCF Management, Inc. He has also given his time and expertise as a valuable member of the Ohio State Lima Board of Trustees. His leadership in that area has helped Ohio State Lima shape the vision for the campus.
“A gift that helps further the vision to create a place for students and the community to gather and enjoy all that the University has to offer speaks volumes to the value and importance the Unverferth family places on the facility,” said Dr. John R. Snyder, dean and director of Ohio State Lima. “We are very appreciative of what Jim and Joni have decided to do.”
