We did it!

July 22, 2016

Thank you to all of our wonderful donors! Because of your generous support, we blew past our goal of $20,000 and raised over $25,000! Thanks to you, Dr. Joann Otto's legacy will continue to live on at Western through the microscope endowment that will provide ongoing microscopial support for biology faculty and students!
