ISU Donation Benefits Construction Program, Thanks to Biddle Family


Troy and Pam Biddle, Hannig Construction Troy Biddle, owner of Terre Haute-based Hannig Construction, and his wife Pam have pledged $100,000 to Indiana State University to create a Construction Management scholarship in honor of his parents who led Hannig

for two decades. ISU’s trustees on Friday acknowledged the gift by voting to name a lab in the Technology Annex Building the Bill and Toni Biddle Construction Management Lab. “Hannig Construction Inc., and our family are honored to have been involved in numerous projects at ISU over the years,” Troy Biddle said. “It is important to my wife and I to name this scholarship and lab after my parents to show our support to Indiana State University and Construction Management students.” The Bill and Toni Biddle Endowed Construction Management Scholarship will support students who reside in the Wabash Valley and are majoring or minoring in Construction Management. Construction Management is the largest degree program in the College of Technology with more than 500 students enrolled. It is also the largest online program at ISU. “Hannig Construction has been an important partner to Indiana State University and numerous other businesses in the Wabash Valley who are investing in our community,” ISU President Deborah Curtis said. “We are grateful that Troy and Pam Biddle have chosen to invest in ISU by supporting local students who are pursuing degrees in Construction Management.” Hannig has been operating in Terre Haute since 1960. Bill Biddle purchased the company in 1988, and with his son, Troy, expanded the company’s footprint as a commercial and industrial contractor. Troy assumed the role of president after his father’s passing in 2007. The Biddles’ oldest son, Christian, graduated from ISU in 2020 with a degree in Economics. Their youngest son, Shane, is currently a freshman pursuing a degree in Finance.
