SIU Alumnus Donates $1.3 Million

SIU is receiving $1.3 million from one of it's alumni.

The University announced Jim Greenwood's estate is donating the money to provide scholarships for disabled students looking to earn a degree in science or engineering.

Greenwood went to SIU in the 1960's because it was one of the few universities at the time that was wheelchair accessible. Greenwood died in 2009 and his wife, Martha, died in January.
