FULTON, Mo. (KMIZ)
William Woods University received a $1.7 million dollar donation to aid in the ongoing development of the William Woods Center for Equine Medicine.
“This incredibly generous donation will allow us to complete renovations to the indoor space, and provide the veterinary and lab equipment that will be used to treat our horses and teach our students,” said Paul Schiltz, University veterinarian and associate professor in the WWU School of Equestrian Studies. “Our center will set William Woods University apart as the primary institution for prospective students who want to study biology, pre-medicine and equestrian.”
Ms. Theresa Vonderschmitt donated the money to the university.
“Theresa Vonderschmitt exemplifies what it means to support education. As a friend, donor and board member of William Woods University for more than two decades, her generosity has been exceptional,” said President Barnett. “In this season of giving, we simply cannot express our appreciation enough for Theresa’s latest groundbreaking gift, which will help make our cutting edge Center for Equine Medicine a reality while boosting our nationally-renowned Equestrian Science degree program.”
