DEVELOPMENT UPDATES

We would like to thank the Sara Smith Self Foundation for their gift of $25,000 to support the Luther Winborne Self Fellowship Fund. This marks the 25th anniversary of the scholarship which supports doctoral students demonstrating financial need in the School of Education.

We would also like to thank the J.M. Smucker Company, Tim Smucker, and Richard Smucker for $30,000 gift in support of the Haggai Academy. The J.M. Smucker Company and Tim and Richard Smucker have been long time supporters of the THA Foundation under the leadership of Tom Haggai. These gifts represent the completion of a commitment made to Dr. Haggai, but also a belief in the mission of the Haggai Academy. The Haggai Academy will provide financial and professional support to selected non-traditional students preparing to become licensed elementary school teachers as well as address the growing shortage of classroom teachers in other levels of education.
