Largest scholarship gift to Foundation to benefit West Plains students

Missouri State University-West Plains students will soon benefit from the largest gift in the campus’ history – a $4 million gift that will endow and expand the Corps of Opportunity program and two athletics scholarships. The gift to the Missouri State University Foundation is from the Lorene Thompson Brooks estate. In recognition, the Corps of Opportunity Program will be renamed the Ed and Lorene Thompson Brooks Corps of Opportunity Program. It is the largest scholarship gift in the Foundation’s history.
