Charles Wyly

Coming to Louisiana Tech as a student and athlete from the small community of Delhi, which has supplied several outstanding names in Tech history, Charles Wyly earned a spot on the Bulldog football team of coach Joe Aillet. Lettering all four years from 1952 through 1955, Wyly helped Tech win three Gulf States conference championships and produce an overall record of 27-8-2. Since those college days over 50 years ago, Wyly and his brother Sam have become very successful business men. Charles Wyly has also continually supported Louisiana Tech and Bulldog athletics through the years. Wyly Tower, the most recognizable building on the Tech campus, is named after Wyly's father. He has also helped establish the F. Jay Taylor Eminent Scholar Chair in journalism and the Robert C. Snyder Endowed Professorship in English. A longtime reside of Dallas, where he first made his mark in the computer industry, Wyly's most recent contribution to his alma mater was a donation of $1.2 million for the construction of the Charles J. Wyly Athletic Center, which opened in June of 2001.
