  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

University fan to expand endowment during press conference in Findlay

Lifetime Bowling Green basketball fan Bill Frack will announce an increase in his endowment for the basketball program at a news conference Wednesday at 10 a.m.

The press conference will be held at The Heritage, a health service building, in Findlay, Ohio.

In 2011 Frack planned a $10 million endowment, which was the largest single private gift in the University’s history. It was also the largest one-time gift ever designated to a Mid-American Conference basketball program.

Frack is not a University alumnus, but a long time Falcon basketball fan. His father took him to his first game where he watched the Falcons play in 1948. He has remained a fan of the Falcons ever since.

2011 was not the first time Frack decided to help the program. In 2008 he donated $2 million to start the construction of the Stroh Center. With that donation the words “Bill Frack Court” were sketched into the floor.

Frack has sketched his name into Falcon basketball history without ever playing. At Wednesday’s press conference he will become an even bigger part of the program when he announces the increase on the endowment.
