I want to congratulate the Institutional Advancement Team for their fine work during recent days. During the 2015-2016 year, the IA Team raised more than $12 million through donor gifts and foundational grants. Leading these announcements, we celebrate the $7.8 million gift from the E.C. Winstead Estate. The gift, providing resources for student aid and ensuring needed stability and fiscal strength for the College, was received at a time it was needed most. Continuing the momentum, I am pleased to announce that Barton is the recipient of three additional grants this summer to support the College’s educational and recruitment efforts in the year ahead.
- The Cannon Foundation has approved a $150,000 grant for Moye Science Hall to update and renovate classroom laboratory space for teaching, research, and discovery.
- The Wilson Tourism Authority has approved a grant for $10,000 to be awarded to Barton College for recruitment marketing.
- The Healthcare Foundation of Wilson has approved a $125,000 grant to support healthy lifestyles and nutrition in the Wilson community.
