YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A fixture on Youngstown State University’s campus is getting a name.

The fountain just outside of Kilcawley Center is now named after Daniel H. Becker. He’s chief executive of Becker Funeral Homes.

The area is now named “Daniel H. Becker Family Fountain Commons.”

The fountain sits at the center of the campus. For five decades, it’s been a place where students have gathered to study, eat and socialize.

The naming is to recognize Becker’s gift of $1 million.

Dan Becker attended Youngstown College, as it was known back in the early 1960s. He said the school provided him with a needed foundation for his eventual career.

“The university is so wonderful, and it has grown so much, and it has done so much for the community. It’s just outstanding,” Becker said.

The $1 million gift will provide $10,000 a year to operate and maintain the fountain area. It will also support an annual $30,000 scholarship for full-time students, in perpetuity.
