Fort Lewis College’s new hall to mix high-tech labs and beauty

Everything a budding scientist could want
Raising the money

The Fort Lewis College Foundation committed to raising $4.2 million for the new Geosciences, Physics and Engineering Hall. According to Mark Jastorff, vice president for advancement, the college has raised half, with $1.4 million cash on hand, and a total of $2.1 million including pledges.
Most of the donations have come in large chunks – $900,000 from the FLC Foundation, $200,000 from La Plata Electric Association, $90,000 from alumnus and $288,000, from the Roy Dalpra Trust, a donation just announced.
“Dalpra has also given about $400,000 in scholarship funding since the late 1980s,” FLC spokesman Mitch Davis said, “but we don’t know much about him. He also supported San Juan College and was in the oil and gas industry, but that’s about it.”
