GETTING IT DONE: Univ. of Washington AD Scott Woodward said the $250M renovation of Husky Stadium is "on time and on budget." In Seattle, Bob Condotta notes the stadium is set to be complete for the '13 football season. UW had a goal of raising $50M "in major gifts by the end of construction," and Woodward said the current total is $48.5M. Woodward: "I was scared beyond belief. But here again, hard work and belief in our program and belief in this university, our donors step up year in and year out.” Woodward said that the money “came from many corners.” Woodward: “I don’t have one big donor that wrote a big check. We have a bunch of healthy donors that have stepped up" (SEATTLE TIMES, 4/24).
