In 1890 Jacob Spori, the first principal of the institution that became BYU-Idaho, paid $177 from his own pocket to keep the school open. He even worked on the railroad for a time and used those earnings to pay the salaries of teachers. Brett Sampson, who works with LDS Philanthropies, discusses the sacrifice and service of those who support BYU-Idaho.
