McKee Alumni Center

The McKee Alumni Center is named in honor of alumni, Harold "Mac" McKee '32 and Beulah McKee '34. During their lives and through their estate, Mac and Beulah McKee contributed more than $1 million to Western Michigan University. They spent a lifetime as devoted public school educators in Kalamazoo County.

The McKees supported several student scholarships with substantial gifts to WMU, and they named the University as the sole beneficiary of their estate. Harold (1907-1989) and Beulah (1907-1991) were not people of extraordinary means, simply people of extraordinary generosity.

The Office of Development & Alumni Relations is proud to have the space named for these two graduates, who made exemplary gifts of their time, talents, and accumulated life savings to their Alma Mater.
