j

ewish philanthropists Mort
and Brigitte Harris gave a $5
million gift to Wayne State
University to create scholarships for
the School of Medicine and provide
resources and ongoing support for the
university's community outreach adult
literacy program.
With each initiative receiving
$2.5 million, the gift will create the
Mort and Brigitte Harris Endowed
Scholarship Fund (Harris Scholars) in
the School of Medicine and the Mort
and Brigitte Harris Office for Adult
Literacy Endowment Fund in the Irvin
D. Reid Honors College.
"The friendship and support Mort
and Brigitte Harris have provided to
Wayne State University is reflective
of their commitment to scholar-
ship, research and community," WSU
President Allan Gilmour said.
The Mort and Brigitte Harris
Endowed Scholarship Fund in the
School of Medicine will create the
Harris Scholars program and address
the high costs of tuition and related
expenses making it difficult for talent-
ed students to attend medical school by
providing them with full scholarships.
The Mort and Brigitte Harris Office
for Adult Literacy Endowment Fund
will address the challenge of adult
illiteracy and provide resources for
expanded staff and training as well as
ongoing support for the office's opera-
tions. In gratitude and recognition for
the generous gift, the office will be
named the Mort and Brigitte Harris
Office for Adult Literacy.
"Wayne State has always been a
place in the community where people
were given opportunity; opportunity to
learn, to work and to make something
of themselves" Mort Harris said. "I am
happy to be able to support the mis-
sion of the university in ways that will
improve the lives of so many"
