The couple increased their commitment to Illinois State by contributing outright and planned gifts to fund the Paul and Sandra Harmon Shakespeare Endowment and the Harmon Recruitment Scholarship in history. The couple’s over $400,000 in lifetime giving qualifies them to be recognized among Illinois State’s most distinguished donors in the 1857 and Heritage Societies.
