Northwest Foundation board celebrates $10 Million endowment milestone

Members of the Northwest Mississippi Community College Foundation celebrated with Northwest President, Dr. Gary Lee Spears and members of the Northwest Foundation staff the reaching of a milestone in the history of the foundation. As of July 31, the value of the Northwest Endowment had surpassed $10 million.  “In 1996, the endowment stood at $250,000.  Through the extraordinary support of the Northwest administration, especially, Dr. Spears, the faithful and dedicated leadership of this foundation board, the prudent management of Cook and Bolton Consulting Group with Merrill Lynch, and the generosity of hundreds of donors, we have reached this significant milestone.  In addition to this, we have awarded an additional $4.5 million in scholarships over these years,” said Sybil Canon, associate vice president of Development and Special Projects.
