Supporting opportunities into the future

William N. and Doris Mae Poundstone

Poundstone is a name synonymous with mining and education. William N. and Doris Mae Poundstone have continued their support of the mining engineering program and the college for many years. Poundstone included WVU in his estate plan and established a scholarship in the Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources.

“West Virginia University was an enduring part of my parents’ lives. They took great satisfaction in supporting the mining school and the Poundstone lecture series. With this estate gift these two proud West Virginians will continue to assist new generations of Statler College students.” —William N. Poundstone, Jr.
