Stefan Kay - Why I'm leaving a legacy

Above: Principal Hugh Nisbet, Sir Duncan Weatherstone chair of the board of governors and Stefan Kay, SRC president toasting the new University in the 1960s.

Mechanical Engineering graduate Stefan Kay, OBE, is a well known face around Heriot-Watt, having been Student President in the 1960s, and later as Director of Campus Services at the Scottish Borders Campus.

He is a  strong supporter of Heriot-Watt’s fundraising efforts, and has himself put in place plans for a legacy.  “My association with Heriot-Watt now goes back more than 50 years, and it seems right to give something back. 

Some people can only give a little time; others money and some both - it is worth doing. There are a number of charities which I support which do worthy work.

The University is one of those, and a legacy is a useful way of ensuring this work can continue long into the future.
