Zimmer and his wife, a former social worker who aided critically and terminally ill patients, have pledged to provide financial support to the program for a minimum of three years.
“Cal State Fullerton has been wonderful to me,” he said. “The university gave me a tremendous career opportunity. I feel blessed, and we are fortunate enough to be able to make this financial contribution to the program.”
The Zimmers, married 28 years, wanted to donate to the program for one simple reason: to make the transition from college to life on their own a little easier for the graduating scholars.
