MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Middle Tennessee State University says an alumnus has donated $10 million to the school's Centennial fundraising campaign — the largest gift from an alumnus in the school's history.
The announcement of the gift by Nashville entrepreneur Woody Miller is part of MTSU's public launch of its $80 million Centennial Campaign. The campaign has been in a "quiet phase" since before the University observed its 100th anniversary last Sept. 11. Miller's gift has helped boost the campaign's early commitments to nearly $54 million.
