Wingstop’s CEO has donated 10.2 million dollars to Kansas State University for student well being initiatives.
Charlie Morrison and his wife Debbie are creating the Morrison Center for Student Well-being with this investment. The new center will oversee all aspects of student well-being campus wide. Mental health and overall well-being are important to the Morrisons.
The center will gather data to identify current issues impacting student well-being and be a centralized hub for promoting, coordinating and scaling up Student Life well-being programs, as well as help promote other campus wellness initiatives.
Additionally, the center will serve as a home for ‘gatekeeper’ training for faculty, staff and students to recognize and refer students with a well-being concern and connect students to information and resources through a number of different engagement activities.
The Morrisons additionally gave a gift to the K-State food pantry; Cats’ Cupboard. With this investment comes the naming of the director position, which will now be known as the Morrison Family Director of Cats’ Cupboard.
The Morrisons have also invested in K-State’s student athletes with a gift to help create space and programming for mental health and wellness services. They also have established a scholarship, using matching funds contributed by Otis and Wanda Gilliland, for first-generation students in the College of Business Administration.
