The School of Industrial Engineering and Management at Oklahoma State University developed an ambitious strategic plan. One of the goals in the strategic plan was to increase the school endowment to $20 million by 2020 and to make IEM a named and endowed school. Below you will find the updates towards that goal. Thank you to all of our generous donors!

Kent & Sheryl Powers
Sheryl and Kent Powers believe that one of the most gratifying things to do in life is to give other people the opportunity to better themselves and see them succeed. Giving opportunities can be provided in a variety of ways, depending on your objective. Having known the importance of a good education and the launchpad it provides for one's career and contribution to society, it became clear to them that this would be their motivation for establishing an IEM endowed scholarship at OSU valued at $180,000.
