WEATHERFORD, Okla. (KSWO) - Southwestern Oklahoma State University received their largest single donation in the history of the university Tuesday.

Jerry and Margaret Hodge of Amarillo donated $5 million to the university to go toward a state-of-the art pharmacy and rural health center.

“The commitment of the Hodges to support SWOSU with a $5 million gift is being recognized today as the single-largest donor donation to this institution in its 122-year history,” said SWOSU President Randy Beutler.

University leaders and state legislators gathered in the Memorial Student Center Ballroom Tuesday for the announcement.
