Why? Why? Why? Duke University absoultely did not need $5,000,000! It has one of the highest tuition rates in the state. Stanley and Elizabeth Star just want to be "stars" on campus. There were many many more schools(high schools, middle schools, grade schools)in the Durham area that could have used that money. Imagine what Durham county schools could have done with five million dollars! It amazes me how two individuals can give five million dollars to a private university that is in no financial distress and ignore the schools within the same city that don't have adequate funding.
