DURHAM, N.H. — The financial adviser for a longtime University of New Hampshire library employee says the man would have been pleased with the university’s decision to spend one fourth of his $4 million gift to the school on a video scoreboard for the football stadium.
Financial adviser Edward Mullen tells WMUR-TV (http://bit.ly/2cXgxk6 ) Robert Morin left a small portion to the library, but the money was unrestricted beyond that. The 77-year-old left UNH $4 million following his death in 2015.
The school plans to use $2.5 million for an expanded career center. The library will receive $100,000.
But critics say the $1 million for the scoreboard for is a poor use of the funds.
The university says it’s heard from those who disagree but it isn’t changing its decision.
