Sarkeys Foundation Makes $1.6 Million Grant to OU Law Center


NORMAN (JR) -- The Sarkeys Foundation of Norman has made the largest single gift to the University of Oklahoma College of Law's library and courtroom addition.

The $1.6 million was grant given in honor of alumnus Dick Bell, OU President David L. Boren said.

With this lead gift, the College of Law and its alumni leaders have now raised $6 million in the $7 million private fund-raising campaign to build an addition that will double the size of the Law Center. OU will use another $10 million in bond funding for the $17 million project, which includes significant renovation of the existing Law Center. "The exceptional contribution from the Sarkeys Foundation ensures that our College of Law library and courtroom addition will be one of the best in the nation," said Boren. "The Sarkeys Foundation, one of the University's most generous friends, has made an immeasurable contribution to the future of our College of Law and generations of its students." In recognition of the gift, the courtroom/auditorium in the new addition will be named for the late Dick Bell, a 1932 graduate of the College of Law and longtime Seminole attorney. His son, Richard Bell, serves on the Sarkeys Foundation Board of Trustees. "Not only was Dick Bell a leader in his profession," said Boren, "he was a remarkably generous friend to young people and helped provide the financial means to send many deserving young people to the University of Oklahoma and other colleges." Groundbreaking for the library and courtroom addition is scheduled Oct. 23 in connection with the college's 90th anniversary, and the project should be completed in time for the 2001 school year. Cheri D. Cartwright, executive director of the Sarkeys Foundation, said the gift to the College of Law addition continues the Sarkeys Foundation's mission of supporting projects that improve the quality of life in Oklahoma and the Southwest. The Dick Bell Courtroom will feature a two-story design and facilities including: * Distance learning capability to transmit programs of interest to the public and for continuing legal education to audiences anywhere in the country. …
