Hoffman Room Dedication

The Marion Hoffman Room, which houses the assistant vice president for campus life,
was dedicated on December 14. It recognizes the generous support of Chad Gobel, a
1993 graduate and former Student Government Association president who wanted to honor
the impact the late Marion Hoffman had on his life. Hoffman served as TU’s first assistant
dean for student development. Gobel’s gift has created the Marion B. Hoffman ’74 Ethical
Leadership Endowment, which awards scholarships to students who demonstrate integrity
in their decision-making as leaders and who have shown continual leadership and service
to the university through student organizations, university committee participation,
academic achievement and outstanding contributions to campus life. Gobel’s support
not only honors Hoffman’s contributions to past student leaders, but it also encourages
current and future student leaders to dedicate themselves to ethically serving the
campus community. TU is grateful for Gobel’s support in developing and encouraging
sound student leadership skills that position alumni to become responsible citizens
and leaders in their communities.

Grateful Scholarship Recipients

Recipient, Peggy Friedmann-Gordon Music Competition

“Thank you so much for making the Peggy Friedmann-Gordon Music Competition a possibility.
The assistance I have received through this competition has allowed me to focus my
limited finances on preparing for graduate school applications and auditions, which
will in turn allow me to grow as a musician and educator.”


Britney Tetteh ’21

Recipient, Accounting Advisory Board Scholarship

“The Accounting Advisory Board Scholarship has meant a lot to me from being recognized
for what I have achieved so far to relieving some financial stress from my family.
Being recognized for my academic success is very reassuring and pushes me to be the
best version of myself every day.”

Clyde Tubal ’21

Recipient, Jess Fisher, Class of 1934, College of Science and Mathematics Scholarship
Endowment in Memory of Cecilia Fisher Rudman

“Without this scholarship, I do not think I would have built the intimate connections
that I have with my peers and professors. My TU experiences have also instilled a
boost of confidence, independence, and responsibility within me as I continue to mature
as an individual. Without your generosity, I believe I would not be the same person
I am today.”
