James M. Boring, Jr. and Syble E. Boring Scholarship Endowment Established at Reinhardt University
Reinhardt University recently received a generous donation from the trust of Mr. James E. Boring, Jr. and Syble E. Boring, who were devoted supporters of the college. The contribution of more than $200,000 will allow the University to establish the James M. Boring, Jr. and Syble E. Boring Scholarship Endowment.
“It was my privilege to know and visit Mr. and Mrs.Boring on many occasions, and I have fond memories of both.” said JoEllen Wilson, Reinhardt vice president for advancement. “They appreciated what Reinhardt means to our students and alumni, as evidenced by the gift for scholarships.”
Income from the endowment will provide scholarship assistance to students according to financial need and those with good academic records. Priority will be given to students in Whitfield County, Georgia.
