The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - NEWS - FROM STAFF RE­PORTS

A South­west­ern Ok­la­homa State Univer­sity alum­nus has of­fered to match up to $25,000 in gifts to honor the late Robert Lee Cham­bers, who was an ac­tive mem­ber of the SWOSU fac­ulty for more than 40 years. The anony­mous donor pledged to match any gifts up to $25,000 to pro­vide schol­ar­ships to jazz and trom­bone stu­dents at SWOSU.

Cham­bers, who died re­cently at age 65, was a 1974 and 1976 SWOSU alum­nus who earned his doc­tor­ate of mu­si­cal arts from the Univer­sity of Ok­la­homa in 1986.

Gar­rett King, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the South­west­ern Ok­la­homa State Univer­sity Foun­da­tion, said the thought­ful trib­ute will make a tremen­dous im­pact on the lives of the univer­sity’s jazz and trom­bone stu­dents. Gifts may be made to the Dr. Robert Cham­bers Schol­ar­ship Fund by go­ing to www. GiveToSWOSU.com or by call­ing 580-774-3267.
