Jim and his wife Betty Mae recently attended "Cal Poly On the Road" in Sacremento, where he was "inspired" to hear how Cal Poly is committed to incorporating "hands-on learning" in all majors. Believing that this philosophy "makes Cal Poly different and superior to most other engineering universities" and "worthy of ongoing support," the Lockes gifted a Charitable Remainder Uni trust. Jim notes "My decision to go to Cal Poly in 1955 was driven by that emphasis on lab courses. The hands-on learning has served me personally very well."
