Renaming building a fitting honor for Beggs

Renaming the Engineering Research Building at Wichita State University after retired WSU president Donald L. Beggs is a fitting honor. Beggs led WSU for 13 years before retiring last month. The name change was prompted by the generous support of Wichita philanthropist Velma Wallace. Beggs noted the “positive impact” the engineering building and its students will have on society. Beggs and his wife, Shirley, had a similarly positive impact on the university and this community.
