Over the past couple of days, everyone around school has been getting emails that the president of the University would have a major university announcement this morning at 10:30.
As curious little students, Maggie and I decided we needed to go. Granted, we were hoping the major announcement had something to do with a two-week long Spring Break to further cut school costs, but, who's counting?
So, when we arrive, we realize we are just two in a VERY large crowd of people around the Thad Cochran Center. We found a friend of ours and talked about what we thought the announcement is going to be. One thing shrouded in mystery was whatever was propped on an easel and covered with a black cloth.
As Dr. Saunders began to speak, I suspected it had to do with money, considering how she was pointing out board members of the foundation.
Then, she unveiled this puppy:
You know, just a $6,000,000 dollar donation to the university. Apparently, it is the largest cash donation the University has ever had.
Now, I just want want to know who the anonymous donor is!
