Belton, Texas – In an unprecedented show of support, the faculty and staff of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor has endorsed the Momentum campaign by making gifts and pledges totaling $543,160 during the months of September and October. When issued the challenge to “be a part of the momentum,” university employees responded with donations and multi-year pledges in support of scholarships and Campus Master Plan projects such as the Isabelle Rutherford Meyer Nursing Education Center, the Baugh Center for the Visual Arts, the new Student Union Building, Crusader Stadium, and a new performing arts center.
“Each fall we call upon our faculty and staff to consider making a charitable gift for scholarships or to some area of the university to which they feel special allegiance, and they are always very generous in their support,” said President Randy O’Rear. “But this year, it has been particularly gratifying to see how many university employees are excited about taking part in the Momentum campaign. With our enrollments steadily growing and many new facilities taking shape across the campus, they can see that UMHB is taking the steps it needs to become the university of choice for Christian higher education in the Southwest, and they want to be a part of making that happen. Their commitment to this campaign mirrors their commitment to providing the finest educational experience for each one of our students, and I deem it an honor to work beside them every day.”
