Tulsa couple pledges $9 million to outfit OSU-Tulsa science lab

OSU-Tulsa is celebrating a big gift. The university received a $9-million pledge Wednesday from the Helmerich Foundation.

The money will be used to build OSU-Tulsa's first research and technology development center. Walter and Peggy Helmerich hope the facility will take OSU-Tulsa to new levels of achievement and will make a difference in Tulsa and around the world.

Walter Helmerich with the Helmerich Foundation: "The Lord has blessed Peggy and me with a wonderful family and also with the ability to help sometimes in other things and that's why this is important to us."

Construction will begin in October. It will be called the Helmerich Advanced Technology Research Center. OSU hopes to have it open by the fall of 2007.
