For many years, the KAMU broadcasting station and Sterling C. Evans Library have been vital resources for students and faculty at Texas A&M University. Hoping that future generations of Aggies will continue to benefit from them, Charles Gilreath, former associate professor and interim dean of university libraries, created a bequest in his estate to provide unrestricted funding for both.
Gilreath attributes his time at the university libraries to his successful career and feels KAMU adds to the quality of life in the community. The station is Gilreath’s main source for information and entertainment. “I enjoy the content they produce,” he said. “It’s high quality and worthy of support.
“I want to provide KAMU and Evans Library with resources that allow their administrators to help students and the community,” he added. “The university is changing rapidly, so providing unrestricted funds will give administrators the flexibility they need to put the money to its best use.”
