Hanekamp, created an endowment in honor of his late wife to acknowledge and recognize COM staff, like Lura, who dedicate their careers to serving fellow staff, students and faculty.

This permanently endowed fund at the University of Arizona Foundation is designed to help support the COM staff awards in perpetuity by Mr. Hanekamp.
