ASHLAND – Ashland University alumna and Columbus resident Deborah Liebert Karl has made a $1 million gift to Ashland University to fund a Military Veterans Resource Center on campus.
Liebert Karl, who is an AU trustee, said she made the gift in honor and memory of her father, Jack W. Liebert. He served in the Navy during World War II and enlisted in the Korean War.
“My father fought for our country’s freedom. We should never forget the sacrifices that our military have made for our country. The Military Veterans Resource Center will demonstrate our pride and thankfulness for their service,” she said.
