Spring Hill College Magazine
In a 1987 letter to Spring Hill College, John Barter ‘68 wrote:
“Spring Hill College is committed to excellence — offering the very best students a rare educational opportunity — permitting them to realize their full intellectual, moral, spiritual, and social potential, and preparing them to be tomorrow’s leaders in business, education, government and the professions. Spring Hill offers such a unique opportunity that she must always be improving, striving for excellence in the education she offers her students, her impact on their lives and their influence on society."
Mary Lou ‘70 and John Barter ‘68 have become what John articulated 29 years ago. Their pure, unselfish love for the college and confidence in our future led us to where we are now — excited, hopeful and financially stable as we move toward the beginning of the college’s third century. In recognition of their extraordinary leadership, philanthropy and passionate support, Spring Hill College dedicated the Mary Lou and John Barter Student Center in their honor on October 29, 2016.
