A farewell reception for Wichita State University President and First Lady, Don and Shirley Beggs was held Thursday on campus.
A room in Koch Arena was filled with well-wishers, faculty and staff wearing black and gold, the Wu Shock, cheerleaders, all wanting to express their appreciation for the Beggs.
For 13 and a half years, the couple tirelessly supported WSU.
Bobby Gandu was a student during their tenure and is now WSU’s Director of Admissions. He says the Beggs are going out with style, grace and a lot of respect and pride for the institution.
