ENMU would like to give a very special thank you to alumnus Al Whitehead (BS 55) and wife Lacy for their lifetime giving that surpassed $1 million in December 2021. For more than 55 years, Al and Lacy of Tulsa, Oklahoma, made ENMU a top philanthropic priority providing theatre and marketing scholarships, supporting student-athletes via the Greyhound Club and top funding priorities.
"All of this is payback for a good education and four wonderful years," Al said. "I loved every minute I was here."
Al played four seasons for the Greyhounds in 1948–1950 and 1954. His education was placed on hold for several years when he served in Korea with the U.S. Army.
He has so many fond memories of his time competing with his fellow Greyhounds that he and Lacy contributed $500,000 to help ENMU build the new Greyhound Stadium. In appreciation for their gift, the football field is named Al Whitehead Field at Greyhound Stadium. Al served on the Alumni Association Board of Directors for more years than we can count. Thank you, Al and Lacy!
