WSU Museum of Art Director Christopher Bruce, right, and Floyd made Jordan Schnitzer an “Honorary Cougar” in recognition of his gift of $5 million to the university’s Museum of Art capital campaign. Schnitzer said his contribution underscores his fundamental belief that the arts reflect the highest ideals of our society.
