The University’s Track Renovation campaign is off to a good start. Roger and Sally Read pledged $400,000 to kickstart the campaign to be matched by donors. To date, the Read Track Challenge has raised $200,000 with other solicitations still under consideration.

Dr. Roland (Rollie) and Mary Bauer made a gift supporting the University’s Lee R. Jackson Field Track Renovation campaign. An avid distance runner, Rollie, over the years, has used the University’s track for a change of pace in his running schedule. He says he always appreciated the track being open and available for public use. Dr. Bauer is a past chairman of the University’s Board of Trustees.
