Watauga County businessman Paul Brown has completed a
gift begun in 2005 to the Appalachian State University Foundation.
The gift of
approximately 25 acres of land will establish the Thomas Walsh and Paul Brown
Endowment for Sustainable Development at Appalachian State University. The land
given is valued at more than 1.3 million dollars. The gift will fund student scholarships,
faculty support and outreach programs of Appalachian’s Goodnight Family
Sustainable Development Program. In its 16th year, the sustainable
development program is an academic and outreach program committed to academic
interdisciplinary study, environment education and awareness and sustainable
community outreach and development.
