A dedication ceremony for the Rankin College of Business Donor Wall is scheduled for noon on Friday, February 24, 2017, at the Southern Arkansas University Business Building lobby in Magnolia.

Now President Emeritus Dr. David Rankin and his wife, Toni, were surprised last April with the unveiling of SAU’s first named college – the David F. Rankin College of Business – honoring his more than 45 years of service to the University. The donor wall recognizes those who have contributed to what will be one of SAU’s largest endowments.

More than $920,000 has been raised towards a goal of $1 million to endow the Rankin College of Business. Those interested in helping complete this effort can make a one-time gift or a pledge over a five year period by visiting www.saufoundation.org or calling the Office of Development at 870-235-4287. Gifts to the Rankin College of Business Endowment will impact future generations of SAU students through providing scholarships, classroom enrichment, and student travel support.

The public is invited to attend the donor wall dedication.
