Alisha Quimby West (’86) and Phillip S. “Phil” West (BS ’87, Petroleum Engineering) cherished their time at The University of Tulsa, and they look back with fond memories on the many unique and fulfilling experiences they enjoyed while they were TU students.
Phil West launched a rewarding career in engineering, which took him from ConocoPhillips to Williams to co-founding and serving as president of Anchor Fluid Drilling USA.
Alisha and Phil have been loyal supporters of TU, having given dozens of gifts dating back to 1996 and supporting programs in both athletics and academics. The University of Tulsa has acknowledged the Wests’ extraordinary philanthropy by recognizing them as members of the esteemed Chapman Legacy Society, the Circle Society, and the President’s Council.
As a Lifetime Member of the TU Letterwinners Association, Alisha continues to value the scholarship assistance she received as a Golden Hurricane Cheerleader and the lifetime of cherished memories this experience gave her.
In 2011, Alisha and Phil West decided to create educational opportunities for future generations of student cheerleaders at The University of Tulsa through The University of Tulsa’s Pioneer Program. That year, they established the Alisha Quimby West Cheerleading Scholarship Endowment Fund.
As The University of Tulsa looks toward a promising future, the TU community is grateful to Alisha and Phil West for their planning and foresight. Our Alisha Quimby West Cheerleading Scholars will enjoy important opportunities in the years to come, thanks to the generosity of this loyal couple.
