Millsaps gets $1M gift from parents of recent graduates

JACKSON — Millsaps College has received an anonymous $1 million endowment gift from the parents of a class of 2012 graduate.

Dr. Robert W. Pearigen, president of Millsaps. “The gift was made by parents in honor of the professors and mentors who have changed their child’s life forever and in appreciation of the inspiring experiences that mark a Millsaps education.

“This gift reminds us of the privilege and joy we have as educators in helping transform the hearts and minds of our students, even as our students shape our own hearts and minds.  It also reminds us of the sacred trust that families place in us.”
