President of Spring Hill College, Mary Van Brunt, PhD, expressed gratitude for the grant, stating, “This generous grant, which would not have been possible without the support of former Senator Richard Shelby, is a game-changer for Spring Hill College and the communities we serve. It will enable us to propel our commitment to education, research, and community service to new heights. This grant is another great example of how we carry out our mission of developing leaders while caring for the whole person.
