LSU Giving Day 2024
Donor Spotlight: Bill Wiener, Jr.
A passion for preservation led William B. "Bill" Wiener Jr. to ensure that the stories of individuals, communities and cultures aren't lost.
"We make so many decisions based on history," he said. "I don't understand why people are not interested in their past."
Wiener started donating to support historic preservation activities at LSUS in 1979. His gifts accumulated and laid the foundation for the William B. Wiener Jr. Endowed Professorship that supports the Northwest Louisiana Archives at LSUS's Noel Memorial Library.
The archives will mark its 50th anniversary in 2024.
LSUS graduate endows scholarship to support business students
LSU Shreveport’s growing online programs are yielding a support network around the United States as graduates like Jeff West – who lives in the Seattle, Washington area -- give back to the university.
Jeff and his wife, Tiffany West, have endowed a scholarship that will benefit students majoring in business. Jeff earned an MBA from LSUS in 2020.
“I appreciated the convenience of taking classes online and felt that LSUS was a great value for an AACSB accredited degree. I believe the program is very well-structured and is a great fit for students like myself who have been away from school for a long time,” Jeff said.
