The gift that gives back The Dale and Karen Wernette scholarship helps more than students Dale Wernette, ’67, MBA ’72, chose to attend CMU because of its friendly atmosphere and inviting faculty. During his time on campus, he studied business, joined Alpha Kappa Psi and served as a resident assistant in Robinson Hall. Today, Wernette is giving back to the university so students can have the same opportunities he did. The Dale and Karen Wernette Scholarship, created through a tax-free IRA rollover, will be given to a College of Business Administration student who demonstrates financial need. Dale Wernette, ’67, MBA ’72

“I wanted to support CMU students and young adults following in my footsteps,” Wernette said. “The IRA rollover option became permanent and a way to make such a gift. There were great tax benefits.”
