Lead Donors

Husker alumni and philanthropists Ruth and Bill Scott of Omaha provided a leadership contribution as a challenge gift to encourage others to invest in the project. The Dinsdale family of Nebraska responded with a major gift commitment. The gift was made by Sid Dinsdale, Chris Dinsdale and Jane Dinsdale Rogers in honor of their father, Roy G. Dinsdale; and by Lynn Dinsdale Marchese and Tom Dinsdale in honor of their father, the late John “Jack” A. Dinsdale.
