Laurie F. and Terry A. Brumbaugh

Laurie F. Brumbaugh (BS ’78) is a loyal alumna of The University of Tulsa and her husband, Terry A. Brumbaugh, is a dear friend and supporter of the university. They are keenly interested in fostering excellence and opportunity at TU. Laurie has many warm and wonderful memories of her college days at TU including the excellent instruction she received in her criminal justice studies and the enduring friendships she made through her participation in Chi Omega Sorority.

Laurie and Terry have generously supported several vital initiatives at TU since 1986 including the TU Alumni Association, TU Uncorked, Homecoming, the TU Annual Fund, the Annual Fund for the Henry Kendall College of Arts and Sciences, the Annual Fund for McFarlin Library, the Tulsa Undergraduate Research Challenge (TURC), the Golden Hurricane Club, the Thomas Challenge for H.A. Chapman Stadium, scholarships, Public Radio Tulsa KWGS and Gilcrease Museum.

Laurie also has freely committed her time and talents by serving on important boards and committees at TU for several years. Her leadership roles include past president of the national board of The University of Tulsa Alumni Association and an ex-officio member of the TU Board of Trustees along with president of the Tulsa chapter of The University of Tulsa Alumni Association.

TU has acknowledged the extraordinary and inspired philanthropy of Laurie and Terry by recognizing them as members of the President’s Council and the Circle Society, signifying their roles as partners in the Board of Trustees’ efforts to advance the university. Meghan G. Neels (BSBA ’11) continues to appreciate the quality education she received in her business studies as well as the fulfilling extracurricular activities in which she was involved including the TU Jazz Band, University Ambassadors and Chi Omega Sorority.

As a result, Laurie, Terry and Neels wish to establish a planned gift to provide supplemental funding for McFarlin Library, the academic heart of the university, and for the TU Alumni Association, which fosters pride and involvement among TU graduates. In fulfillment of this wish, Neels graciously has agreed to serve as a participant in a life insurance gift to be funded by Laurie and Terry to create two endowments: the Laurie and Terry Brumbaugh Endowments for McFarlin Library and the TU Alumni Association.
