Had it not been for Madison scholarships, Betty Coe Cinquegrana might not have earned her bachelor’s in business education that later enabled her to help her husband, Paul, develop a successful personal asset portfolio. “I think the tuition, room and board was about $650 a year then, but as today’s struggling college students know, when you don’t have it, any amount seems impossible to raise.” With a special kind of empathy, Betty’s generosity to her alma mater is returning the favor to current students. Through her support of endowed scholarships, faculty chairs, and programs, Betty Coe Cinquegrana is helping faculty and changing the prospects for hundreds of future Dukes.
