LARAMIE, Wyo. — Philanthropists and entrepreneurs Mick and Susie McMurry have contributed a $6 million to the University of Wyoming's new Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center.
The gift was made through the McMurry Foundation.
It will support the McMurry Family UW Legacy Hall and the Grand Atrium in the Gateway Center.
It is the second multimillion-dollar gift received in the last five weeks for the project. The first was a $10 million commitment from Marian H. Rochelle to name the center.
The center will serve as a gathering place and event space for students, alumni and others.
It will feature dynamic displays that tell the story of the UW.
Construction is scheduled to begin in late spring 2013, with the facility planned to open in the fall of 2014.
