Sometimes a university knows full well of the existence and provisions of a pending bequest. Other times the legal notification arrives unannounced; the way it happened in late February when the Foundation received documentation that the estate of Richard M. Lipe ’67 had bequeathed $37,546.46 to the Highlands University Music Program, making for four very appreciative professors.

Mr. Lipe was a member of the TKE fraternity, one of the largest intact Highlands alumni groups. Last year its members, who assembled at Highlands for a reunion, pledged to fund a $50,000 TKE Scholarship for a student from outside New Mexico.
