Joys, Sorrows, and Well-wishes
- Norm Goetze, retired Extension Agriculture faculty, passed away Saturday, July 12, 2014, in Corvallis, surrounded by family. A celebration of life service was held on July 17 at First Presbyterian Church in Corvallis. It is suggested remembrances be made to Benton Hospice Service or First Presbyterian Church.
After expressed interest, OSU Crop and Soil Science Department Head, Russ Karrow, worked to establish an endowment in Norm’s memory. Under policies in the OSU Foundation it is possible to establish what I call a “builder” account with this intent. The account is established as a sub-account of a Crop and Soil Science unrestricted OSU Foundation account and efforts are made to build the account to the $25,000 level needed to create a standalone endowment.
Plans at this time are to use the fund to support professional development activities of agricultural extension faculty. If an endowed level of funding is not reached after about five years’ time, monies in the account will be directly expended for this same purpose.
