A Promise
“It means a lot to Florrie and me to be able to make a gift that will afford a Penn education to a student in need,” says Patrick Willis, C’04, WEV'06. “Florrie and I have been fortunate since college, and we realize that it’s in no small part due to our time at Penn. We applaud Penn’s commitment to ensure a Penn education is available to the best and brightest, regardless of financial circumstances, and we are proud to play a part in fulfilling that promise.”
In recognition of Patrick’s 10th reunion, Patrick and Florrie, C’02, WEV’03, designated funds from their outside trust to establish a testamentary gift creating the Florence Hallenbeck Willis and Patrick Carlton Willis Scholarship Fund. Their generous gift qualifies them for membership in the Harrison Society, the University’s way of thanking those who have made a legacy gift to Penn. The Willises' story easily illustrates how generosity and forethought can strengthen the University by supporting future generations of Penn students.
