Cougar House I Completed

A ribbon-cutting ceremony marked the completion of Cougar House I, a project that will endow a BYU athletic scholarship.

OVER the years, BYU has been the recipient of many unusual donations, including sheep, telescopes, Oscars, and suits of armor. A recent donation, however, is the first of its kind. July 12, 2001, marked the completion of Cougar House I—a house built entirely through donations from members of the Utah Valley Home Builders Association (UVHBA).

Proceeds from the sale of the house will endow an athletic scholarship at BYU. Because 80 percent of the project was funded by donations, the house, listed at $182,500, will generate about $125,000 for the scholarship fund, says Wayne Ross, ’76, whose company, ArrowStar Construction, donated land for the house.

Located in Springville the Cougar House is a 1,615-square-foot, fully landscaped, three-bedroom, two-bathroom home with a two-car garage. In addition to the home, the owners of the Cougar House will also receive a limited-edition BYU Quarterback Factory print, Golden Cougar Club and Cosmo Kids Club memberships, four season tickets to BYU football and basketball games, and a family All-Sports Card for other BYU athletic events.

“We want the owners of Cougar House to know that when they purchase this home they are also contributing to BYU athletics,” explains Q. Val Hale, ’81, director of men’s athletics.
