Bob and Nedra Funk Make Major Gif
OSU fans will have their first opportunity to enjoy new amenities of the re-invented stadium when the Cowboys host Tulsa in the 2004 home opener on Sept. 11.
"This is an incredible commitment to our stadium improvement," said Harry Birdwell, OSU Athletics Director. "We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Mr. Funk regarding his interest in supporting Oklahoma State, assisting in providing a state-of-the art sports complex and leaving a legacy for his family."
Funk's gift is the second largest received by OSU during its "Next Level" campaign. The university has raised more than $60 million of its $86 million goal in gifts and pledges toward stadium improvements.
Fund founded Express Personnel in 1983. Express Personnel is currently ranked as the fifth-largest temporary employment firm in the world, and recently received the highest composite credit approval by Dunn & Bradstreet for possessing strong financial strength and integrity.
OSU President and System CEO David Schmidly said, "I am particularly grateful that a corporation headquartered in Oklahoma has stepped forward to assist our stadium improvement effort."
