Laurinburg Area Campaign surpasses goal

Laurinburg, N.C. - For the 17th consecutive year, the Laurinburg Area Campaign to Support St. Andrews University exceeded the $500,000 goal.

"We raised $525,208 from 301 donors in the Laurinburg area," said Campaign Co-Chair Ken Nichols. "I am so grateful to all of the donors and volunteers who made this another successful campaign."

Nichols was joined in the campaign leadership by his wife and co-chair Carol, as well as team leaders Julian Butler, Susan Covington, Mac Doubles, Jim Mason and Frances Willis. Division leaders include Jay Todd, Joel Hartwell, Mike Vinson, Christine Johnson, Dan Dean, Jackie Britt, and Wayne and Debbie Hobbs.

"St. Andrews is an economic engine for Scotland County," Nichols said. "The Campaign is not only an investment in St. Andrews, but also a critically important investment in the local community. St. Andrews is one of the largest employers in the county and is a community asset when it comes to attracting businesses and new residents to locate in the area. Every year, St. Andrews graduates and new faculty and staff also settle in the area, adding to the growth of our community."

St. Andrews is one of the top five employers in Scotland County. The university attracts more than 15,000 visitors annually to the county for various events such as open houses for potential students, the Scottish Heritage Symposium, theatrical productions, musical performances, art shows, equestrian competitions and athletic events.

St. Andrews President Paul Baldasare expressed his appreciation for the continuing support from the community.

“This campaign is among our most important each year,” he said. “We are making a statement. This community stands behind its University and is committed to its success going forward."
