A place that fosters success
Giving back to the community is in Graye Wolfe's blood. Graye and his father, Duane Wolfe, both have served as trustees for The College of Idaho, and The College's student-athletes now and in the years to come will benefit from Graye's recent gift that made possible the construction of Wolfe Field. The new, state-of-the-art baseball facility has brought an exciting new flavor to the national pastime in Caldwell while honoring the Wolfe family's longstanding support for The College and a number of Caldwell interests.
Graye is especially pleased that his lead gift for the project served to acknowledge the many contributions of his father to The College, including the Golden Rule Shoot-Out, one of the premier men's small college basketball tournaments in the West. "He always spoke about this school and what it meant to him," Graye said. "One of the things he instilled in me is that it's important to work hard and give back to your community."
Wolfe Field is located at the corner of Griffiths Parkway and Linden Streets in Caldwell. The Coyote baseball team began playing there during the 2009 season, and the new facility also will be the home of the Caldwell Bobcats and the Caldwell Silver Steaks American Legion teams. The infield and basepaths are Field Turf, making Wolfe Field the first ballpark in Idaho with an artificial surface. The outfield is natural grass.
Science faculty need state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment. Scholars in the humanities need access to current publications in their disciplines. Researchers must have the resources to pursue their scholarly interests and helping their students acquire the skills needed to carry out their own investigations. Student-athletes need up-to-date facilities for training and competition as they build their capacities for leadership and teamwork. Ensuring that our students have the opportunity to excel in the classroom, lab and on the field or court is a clear priority for Advance The Legacy.
