Cleveland State gets $10M for engineering school

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland State University will rename its engineering school in recognition of a $10 million gift.

The donation announced Tuesday comes from Parker Hannifin Corp. chairman, CEO and president Donald Washkewicz (WASH'-keh-wihtz), his wife, Pamela, and the Parker Hannifin Foundation.

Cleveland State's Fenn College of Engineering will be renamed the Washkewicz College of Engineering.

The gift ties for the largest in Cleveland State history and is the biggest ever for the engineering program.

The money will be used for scholarships and to renovate the building housing the engineering school.

Donald Washkewicz is a 1972 graduate of Cleveland State's mechanical engineering program.
