MOUNT VERNON — Two major capital improvements to Brewton-Parker College’s main campus are one step closer to becoming reality.
The $1 million Hildegard Stanley Music Center Annex to the Miller Music Building and the $1.5 million renovation of McAllister Hall have been combined into a $2.5 million capital campaign, which was approved by the Board of Trustees at their quarterly meeting April 20.
Pamela Davis, Brewton-Parker’s vice president for advancement, announced to faculty and staff on April 26 that an anonymous foundation is making a $500,000 gift to the overall campaign.
The process of raising the necessary funds for the Music Center Annex has been underway for some time prior to Wednesday’s announcement, with $400,000 raised to date.
David Smith, president of Brewton-Parker, said this anonymous gift will be used for the Music Center, enabling the college to move even closer to beginning construction on the project.
“Brewton-Parker College’s growing academic reputation and its historic commitment to students from south Georgia and the Georgia Baptist Convention continue to draw a greater appreciation from our friends and our peers in the community of higher education,” said Smith.
“This gift is a testament to the needs that will be met through our campaign, as well as to the diligent efforts of our employees and students who worked hard to deliver it.”
