According to a report by Indianapolis Business Journal, the endowment will be allocated for the university’s athletics and general university support programs, as well as the Lacy School of Business. Butler also said it is renaming the Butler Bowl, the field where football and soccer are played in the school, as the Bud and Jackie Sellick Bowl.

“During their long history with the school, they saw it grow and prosper and I know they were quite happy and proud to be a part of its success,” said Wildman. “They would be extremely grateful to Butler for this recognition.”
