Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Angulo took their university experiences to heart. Now, with a gift from their estate, they are touching the hearts of fellow Shockers. Mr. Joseph Angulo was assistant professor of Spanish at WSU from 1961-65. Mrs. Betty Angulo graduated from the University of Wichita in 1937. Additionally, she was the historian for the Alpha Tau Sigma sorority, vice president of the Sociology Club and a member of the Women’s Athletic Association, YWCA and the Rifle Club.
Together, Mr. and Mrs. Angulo took students to Taxco Summer School for many summers. This gave WSU students the opportunity to be immersed in intensive language studies and the culture of Mexico.
“I believe the most significant aspect of the Joseph and Betty Adams Angulo Endowed Scholarship Fund is that it will allow students to curtail or reduce their work schedules, so that they will have more time to devote to their studies and activities related to Hispanic culture,” said Mrs. Eunice Doman Myers, WSU chair/associate professor, modern and classical languages and literature.
