Garth served in the Air Force for several years and later taught exercise Physiology at BYU for 30 Years. As Fisher said, "We give for several reasons, as to honor Jerry's father who lived and worked in Cedar City, to show our appreciation for what SUU did for us, because we met at SUU, and because we struggled financially when we were young and attending school. This is opportunity to help those in the same situation."
