10.14.2009

HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 14, 2009 ? In the last four months, High Point University has received more than $4.8 million in gifts.
 
“Parents of our students and alumni have made substantial gifts designated toward capital projects, such as a new baseball training facility, and the interactive gaming lab in the Nido R. Qubein School of Communication,” says Bill Doerr, senior director of institutional advancement. “The Parents Council recently announced they successfully completed a challenge grant of $250,000 to name the second-floor overlook at the new Communication School in honor of President Qubein’s leadership.”
 
In addition, Doerr says as the burgeoning student population continues to grow, the need for scholarship support has never been greater. In response, alumni and friends have donated $1.2 million for scholarships for deserving students.
 
He adds that other gifts of more than $500,000 have been made through the estates of prominent alumni and friends.
