The Peter C. Kole College of Business Scholarship Endowment

Peter C. and Nancy Kole are among the most generous benefactors ever to support Idaho State University. Peter, a 1963 graduate of the College of Business, returned to his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, where he eventually founded Paramount Metal Products. He is still president and CEO. His success as an entrepreneur and businessman, and his extensive humanitarian acts, both in the United States and his homeland of Albania, earned him the 1998 ISU Distinguished Alumnus Award. In honor of the quality education and positive experience Peter gained at ISU, the Koles established the Peter C. Kole College of Business Scholarship Endowment to assist students majoring in Computer Information Systems.
