L. S. “Sam” Skaggs was a truly remarkable and generous man – and one of the Health Sciences greatest benefactors and friends. On behalf of all of us at the Health Sciences, I offer our deepest condolences to his wife, Aline, their children, Susie Balukoff, Claudia Skaggs Luttrell, Mark Skaggs, Don Skaggs and all their family members and friends.
Many of you know Mr. Skaggs through his kind donations to the College of Pharmacy, which began in the early 1960s with construction of L. S. Skaggs Hall and continues up to today with the new L. S. Skaggs Pharmacy Institute. Named in honor of Sam Skaggs, this new institute, which opens next month, will stand in tribute to his vision, kindness and dedication to promoting scientific discoveries that benefit people worldwide.
Please join me in remembering Mr. Skaggs in your thoughts and in sending our sympathy to his family. His legacy is one that each of us in our own way will strive to continue.
