WILBERFORCE, OHIO, USA, May 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Premier Health President and CEO Mary Boosalis backed up a commitment to education by presenting Wilberforce University with a check for $25,000 as part of the #WilberforceUnite campaign. Campaign funds will be used to enhance facilities, academic programs, and student services as Wilberforce works to improve the historic institution.
“On behalf of the Wilberforce University family, I express heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the generous gift from Premier Health to support the Wilberforce Unite Campaign,” said Wilberforce President Elfred Anthony Pinkard. “This gift will allow us to continue the important work of the Wilberforce Renaissance and is tangible evidence of the strong partnership between Wilberforce and Premier Health in this work of institutional transformation. I want to especially acknowledge and thank Premier Health President and CEO and Wilberforce University Board of Trustee member Mary Boosalis for her confidence in and on-going support of Wilberforce University.”
The #WilberforceUnite campaign has a fundraising goal of $2 million by June 30, 2019 and is the first segment of the University’s 2056 Future Focus Campaign.
