The Peter C. Kole William E. Stratton Scholarship Endowment

Peter C. and Nancy Kole are generous benefactors of Idaho State University. Peter graduated from the College of Business in 1963, returned to his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, and founded Paramount Metal Products. His success as an entrepreneur and his extensive humanitarian activities in the United States and in his native Albania earned him the ISU Distinguished Alumnus Award in 1998. Peter has served as executive-in-residence for the college, sharing his knowledge and experience with students. In 1999, Peter and Nancy established the Kole-Stratton Scholarship Endowment in recognition of their friendship with Dr. William E. Stratton, who joined the ISU faculty as professor of management in 1974 and became dean of the College of Business in 1997.
