The Call Family Foundation plans to invest $1.75 million in scholarship and services that will directly benefit students at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University, with the same amount, $1.75 million, going to the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah, for a total donation of $3.5 million.

Crystal Maggelet announced earlier this month the Foundation's plans to donate $1 million to fund one new, fully-staffed career services center that will bear the Flying J name, at each school. The universities also will receive an additional $750,000 each to be allocated over a 15-year period for scholarships for FJ Management employees and students at the two universities.

New Center Will Tap Expertise of Successful Entrepreneurs
The Jon M. Huntsman School of Business officially launched its Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence with an event that celebrated the very kind of innovative, visionary thinking that created the Center in the first place.

The Center launch included visiting VIPs, speeches, a ribbon cutting, and predictions that this will prove a milestone in the progress of the Huntsman School of Business. Mike Glauser, a successful entrepreneur and author, is the executive director of the Center, and he says he is building a network called the "Aggie 100," a group of entrepreneurs who will assist the Center by offering to be mentors, to speak, and to judge student competitions.
