Cortus Koehler and his wife Addie were grateful for many things, one of which was Cortus's Claremont Graduate University experience. His time earning both an MA and PhD in the School of Politics and Economics enabled him to go on to successful career as a professor of Land Use Management at Cal State Sacramento.
"I received help from several key professors at CGU like John Regan, George Blair, and Gerald Jordan," Cortus said. "Their support and assistance gave me opportunities and a sense of direction that I feel greatly contributed to my professional success."
It was because of this that Cortus and Addie had made a provision for CGU in their estate plans. "We want to make sure that CGU is able to provide the kind of education to future students that Cortus received," says Addie—a sentiment still held after Cortus's passing in 2017.
