HIGH POINT, N.C., April 5, 2018 – Dawn and Tom Martel, parents of three High Point University students, are supporting HPU’s growth with a $75,000 gift.
Tom Martel is a Regional President with Cigna Corporation. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration. Both Tom and Dawn, of Hingham, Massachusetts, have dedicated time to supporting both community and regional charitable causes. Their children are Spencer, Myles and Hillary Martel.
“All three of our children have attended High Point University, where two have graduated and one is currently a senior,” says Tom Martel. “We have been extremely pleased with the caliber of education each received and appreciate the values practiced by faculty and staff.”
The Martel’s contribution supports the continued transformation of HPU’s campus. The Martel Technology Sales Lab in Cottrell Hall, a state-of-the-art experiential facility that was funded entirely by gifts from parents of students, is named in their honor.
