With a gift of $250,000, Missouri S&T history alumnus Cordell Smith has established the university’s first endowment to fund the research efforts of S&T history and political science faculty. The Lawrence O. Christensen Endowed Faculty Fellowship honors late Missouri historian and S&T professor Dr. Lawrence Christensen.
“The fellowship is a way I can contribute a share of my achievements back to Missouri S&T and make sure the impact Dr. Christensen had on my future continues to be available to others,” says Smith, who earned a bachelor of arts degree in history from S&T in 1988. “I want people to believe ‘yes, you can do something in the arts and sciences.’”
