Retiring USF president to donate $23 million to school
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The outgoing president of the University of South Florida will be donating $23 million to the school.
Judy Genshaft announced at her retirement gala Saturday night that she is adding an addition $3 million to the $20 million she previously pledged. The original pledge will be used to fund much of a building for the honors college.
The 71-year-old Genshaft is retiring July 1 after serving 19 years as USF’s president. She will be replaced by Steve Currall, who had been provost and a vice president at Southern Methodist University in Texas.
Genshaft is from a wealthy family that made its fortune in the meat packing industry.
