Western Kentucky University celebrates a landmark achievement on Oct. 31.

Its endowment has grown to more than $100-million.

In addition to the endowment growth, WKU has raised more than $104-million in new gifts and pledges.

V.P. of Institutional Advancement Tom Hiles says the endowment total is a 430-percent increase since 1997.

The overall goal for Western is to have a $200-million endowment by 2012.
