Dr. Charles Goulding '39 accomplished many things since walking in the fourth graduating class of The University of Tampa. His spirit of accomplishment lives on at UT. In his will, Charles created two endowed scholarships that still help students today.
As a chemical engineer, Charles discovered a way to make penicillin more efficiently, saving many lives. His long, productive engineering career took him overseas to Brazil, Mexico, Korea and Venezuela. He returned to the U.S. and participated in the exciting technological advances of the Space Age, securing four patents along the way.
In 1993, Charles visited UT from his Tennessee home. He told us that his greatest ambition was "to find a cure for all virus infections." When he died in 1995, we learned that Charles had another ambition. He made a bequest in his will to provide full scholarships for members of the Native American Pamunkey tribe of Virginia. He also created a second scholarship for UT chemistry students.
The Pamunkey tribe played a part in early American history. The Pamunkey were part of the mighty Powhatan Indian territory that the first English colonists encountered when settling Jamestown in 1607. One of Chief Powhatan's largest tribes lived on the Pamunkey River, which flows into the Chesapeake Bay. Chief Powhatan's daughter, a young girl named Pocahontas, helped the settlers and became part of history.
You Can Affect the Future
Senior Brittany Rubrecht '11 is only weeks away from receiving her UT diploma. She receives a full scholarship from the Charles E. Goulding Endowed Fund. One-quarter Pamunkey, Brittany is an advertising and public relations major who hopes to write for a magazine one day.
The plans that Charles made almost two decades ago make an incredible impact today on UT students like Brittany. You can create your own legacy by including The University of Tampa in your will today. A decision you make today could help a future leader emerge from The University of Tampa tomorrow.
