Buddy and Charlotte
Beck's gift supports PRIDE Center
The Beck PRIDE Center for America's
Wounded Veterans, which opened at ASU late last year, is off to a
great start through the generosity of two ASU alumni, Buddy and
Charlotte Beck of Fairfax Station, Va. The couple donated $1 million
to ASU to support the mission of the center, which assists injured
military personnel who could benefit from rehabilitation, training,
and socialization in a university environment. Details about the Becks' gift, along with comments from Dr. Robert L. Potts,
chancellor, and state and federal officials, are included in the
Beck Center to host drop-in
for vets and supporters
The Beck PRIDE Center will host a "Military
Drop-In and Resource Update" for all soldiers and veterans at ASU,
including students, faculty, and staff, and those who provide support
services to veterans. The public event on Thursday, Jan. 24, will
provide an opportunity for students who have served in the military
and other veterans in the area to get acquainted and learn about the
Beck PRIDE Center's services, according to Susan Tonymon, who
directs the center, and Dr. Dennis White, external liaison.
The drop-in will be 2-4 p.m. in the Chickasaw Room of the Reng
Student Services Center/Student Union. Call ext. 2624 or see the
