Alumni couple gift YSU with $1 million for campus beautification

YOUNGSTOWN

Youngstown State University has received a planned gift with an estimated value of $1 million or more for campus beautification from Walter and Mary Healey, YSU alumni now living in California.

“I want to thank Walter and Mary for this very generous gift and for designating the funds for campus beautification,” YSU President Cynthia E. Anderson said. “Anyone who ever attended YSU understands and appreciates our campus’ park-like environment in the midst of an urban setting. This gift will allow us to ensure that we continue to enhance and maintain that environment for generations to come.”

The Healeys have designated the future funds be used for campus beautification initiatives such as the installation and maintenance of shrubbery, flowers, benches, gazebos, sidewalks, patios, courtyards, sculptures, fountains and other items to enhance the campus’ appearance. Heather Chunn, YSU senior development officer, said the specific use of the funds will be determined once the funds become available upon the deaths of the donors.

“We have great memories of YSU and thought that this was a great way to help keep the campus looking nice,” Walter Healey said.

“Even though we no longer live in Youngstown, it still has a very special place in our hearts and always will,” Mary Healey said. “This is a way that we can give back to a place that means so much to both of us.”

OMG I went to school with Mary (Sweeny) at Mooney. They are just common, down to earth people. How did they ever amass that much money? She is/was a teacher and Walter retired as a Mill Creek policeman when thety married in 02. A Long and long distanced romance. That is so Cool. Thanks Mary and Walter.
