MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College welcomed a substantial and timely donation Wednesday, June 8.
BPC Acting President Dr. Mike Simoneaux received a $100,000 donation from the Holland-Underwood Foundation of Dublin, a longtime supporter of the College.
These funds were received at a critical time for the College, which has faced overwhelming financial challenges in the last year. Dr. Simoneaux expects a smoother fiscal future.
“God answers our prayers, always on time,” said Simoneaux.
BPC was founded in 1904 to serve south Georgians in Christian higher education, and 107 years later it continues to reach the world for Christ in the heart of Georgia’s Sweet Onion Country. Donations, like the one received this week, solidify the significance of the College in the community, explains Dr. Simoneaux.
“This generous gift underscores the confidence that God will continue to bless the Christ-centered and Biblically-based educational ministry of Brewton-Parker College in partnership with the Georgia Baptist Convention,” said Dr. Simoneaux.
The mission of Brewton-Parker College, a Georgia Baptist college, is to develop the whole student through the application of Biblically-centered truth to a liberal arts curriculum in a community of shared Christian values. BPC offers 17 majors and 27 minors and serves students on its main campus in Mount Vernon and at an external learning center in Newnan.
