Fred ’82 and Susan Caldwell ’82 have donated a $50,000 gift to permanently establish the Wayne Etter Real Estate Excellence Fund.

As a lecturer at Mays for almost 34 years, Etter has impacted many students’ lives, including the Caldwells — who both earned degrees from Mays in 1982. Fred earned a bachelor’s in accounting and a master’s in finance, while Susan earned a bachelor’s in marketing.

“We wanted to recognize Dr. Etter for his care, concern, and interest in students — not just in their academic studies but in their lives,” says Fred Caldwell, president of Caldwell Watson Real Estate Group. “Susan and I feel that he exemplifies the very best in teaching.”

Etter is the advisor for the Department of Finance’s Land Economics and Real Estate program and a former recipient of Mays’ Outstanding Teaching Award and Outstanding Service Award.
