Raising and showing horses is a passion for alumnus Peter Rothschild ('70 Policital Science) and his spouse, Lynne C. Flaherty.
Their initial gift was provided in memory of "Can Do," Peter and Lynne’s foal. They chose to establish this award to provide additional learning opportunities for students enrolled in the Honors College Veterinary Medicine program. Their desire is to help WSU students who share their passion for horses.
Peter’s involvement with horses began at age five and Lynne’s horse romance started at age twelve. In 1992, they moved to a small farm in Woodinville and began raising horses as T, S & M Associates.
Peter, an Honors College graduate, is an attorney and manages the family business, Featherspring International Corp. He was a member of the original Honors Visiting Committee and the Honors Advisory Board, and he has been a President’s Associate to the Honors College.
Lynne, a physician, graduated from the University of California at Davis in 1980 in mathematics. She received her M.D. from University of California at San Francisco and did a surgical residency at the University of Washington. She practices emergency medicine in Quincy and Moses Lake.
