Gifts support the Linda Carlson Hoxtell Memorial Scholarship

How would you describe your connection to the University of Minnesota, Morris?
That’s where I met my wife, Linda Carlson Hoxtell ’70. UMM provided us a good education and a foundation for continued learning. That’s also where we got our start as a family.

How does that connection inspire your giving?
The way we remember people is by giving gifts in their memory. At the time of Linda’s death, my wish was for her to be remembered. Developing this scholarship has been a meaningful experience and will continue the knowledge, talent, and skills Linda gave to
many people.

Morris students are...diverse in culture, family background, education, and potential.

Giving to scholarships means...extending the memory of the person who meant much to me.

By funding student scholarships, I impact... thousands of people and their hopes and their dreams.
