According to a press release, Estebo said the gift was motivated by his experiences at the University. Estebo came to USD in 1968, leaving his job in chemical sales, to pursue a law degree. While in law school, he went on to write for the South Dakota Law Review, serve as Student Bar Association president and graduated in 1971 with honors. His significant gift will be used to renovate and enhance the 32-year-old law school building, including expansion of the common space where students, alumni and the public gather.
