For more than four decades, life trustee Ed Bruning has maintained a strong affiliation with Beloit, an institution that's not even his alma mater. "Through the years, I've seen so many wonderful people help the College become a better place for students," says Bruning. Recently, the Brunings made a significant contribution to the College's Classic. Daring. Life-Changing. campaign, dividing their gift between current support for the Beloit Fund and endowment for the Miller Upton Forum.
"I've supported the Beloit Fund for many years," says Bruning. "It contributes to the overall health of the institution and provides the College administration and the board with the discretion they need in planning for and operating this impressive institution."
Supporting the Miller Upton Forum perpetuates an important element of the Beloit experience. "The students' liberal arts experience should include an understanding of the world's economic models, past and present," says Bruning. "I believe it is important to expose students to the real world and the economics that drive it while they are receiving their education. The future will be shaped by these students and their peers. Miller was strongly committed to this element of a broad education, and the forums are a fitting tribute to his dedication to Beloit."
