OGS founding members June and Fred Kummer have made the largest single gift in the history of Missouri higher education with a $300 million donation to Missouri S&T. The gift will enable the university to establish a new school of innovation and entrepreneurship, expand research, provide scholarships and fellowships, and bolster the region’s economy. Fred Kummer, an S&T alumnus in civil engineering, is the founder and chairman of St. Louis-based HBE Corp., which he established in 1960 and built into the world’s leading design-build firm for health care.
