Hooks Fund Is Created To Honor 1932 Graduate

"He always wanted to major in engineering, but knew he wouldn't be able to pass calculus," joked Mrs. Elizabeth Eden Hooks of Marietta, Ga., as she made a gift to create the Cary S. And Elizabeth E. Hooks Fund for Excellence in the college of Engineering. The gift establishes a major unrestricted endowment for the College.
"This, in my opinion, is a very special gift," Dean William F. Walker remarked about the donation. "We are so pleased that Mrs. Hooks made the decision to honor her husband by recognizing his first interest of study, engineering."
Cary S. Hooks was 1932 graduate of business administration in the College of Business at Auburn. Following graduation, he dedicated more than 20 years of his life to working with the U.S. Corps of Engineers, where he was able to practice engineering. After retiring from the corps, Hooks spent several years in the mortgage lending business.
