Real Estate Exec and Wife Donate $9 Million to Kennesaw State University
Real estate executive Norman J. Radow and his wife Lindy has gifted Kennesaw State University $9 million for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, one of the biggest single donor gifts ever for the school, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reported.
KSU – the second-largest Georgia public university – will rename the college Norman J. Radow College of Humanities and Social Sciences after the founder of The RADCO Companies.
The gift includes $2 million to establish the Lindy Radow Humanities and Social Sciences Honors Scholarship Endowment Fund. The Lindy Radow Scholarship will be matched by funds from the KSU Journey Honors Scholarship, to create a Humanities-Honors Scholarship Endowment of $5 million, the Business Chronicle reported.
Radow served as chairman of the Kennesaw State University Foundation Board of Trustees.
This is not Radow’s first contribution to the school, having previously endowed three scholarships – one for students in the Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering Technology.
