LOYAL BRONCOS INVEST IN STUDENT SUCCESS

Boise State University​ professor and longtime donor Lonny Ashworth graduated from Boise State in 1977 and has been passionate about teaching respiratory care students at his alma mater nearly ever since.

In honor of his father, Troy funded the Lonny J. Ashworth Respiratory Care Endowed Scholarship at Boise State. The scholarship supports second-year respiratory care students earning a bachelor of science degree who have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher.
