UAM Announces Largest Donation Ever

MONTICELLO, MS (Ben Caxton) — The University of Arkansas at Monticello will be receiving a donation in excess of $6 million. In a Friday news conference in Little Rock Chancellor Karla Hughes said the private gift from the estate of the late Merle and Deloris Peterson, of Dumas, is the largest in the school’s history. Hughes said the school will make sure to use the money for something at UAM that will continue the Petersons’ legacy of supporting education in southeast Arkansas. Jeff Weaver, UAM’s vice chancellor for advancement, said he hopes the gift will encourage others to give toward educational endeavors at the university.
