Westmont Magazine Parents Pledge $1 Million
Generous parents have given yet another major gift to Westmont. Raymond and Linda Kubisch have pledged $1 million for the new science classroom building, which is one of the College’s top funding priorities. This facility will house the mathematics, physics, and psychology departments and provide much-needed classroom and office space.
The parents of Danica ’96 and Erika ’99, Raymond and Linda have been active members of the Westmont Parents Council since 1995. Previously, they helped raise the funds needed to match a grant from the E. L. Wiegand Foundation of Reno, Nev., to build the E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center.
The Kubisches have also hosted events in their Mercer Island, Wash., home for new and prospective Westmont students.
“We have witnessed firsthand the miraculous way that God is using Westmont to shape the lives of students called to study there,” they said. “Westmont is in the life-changing business, and we have never seen a more effective ministry.”
“Ray and Linda are a delightful couple with a deep and pervasive commitment to Christ,” says President David Winter. “Their impressive generosity in making this gift is typical of their unselfish desire to support the College that has become such an important part of their lives.”
Raymond owns a private orthodontist practice, and Linda, a former teacher with a master’s degree in English, leads Bible studies at Overlake Christian Church.
