Georgetown College receives $1 million from anonymous donor
GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WTVQ) – Georgetown College received $1 million from an anonymous donor to create an Endowed Baptist Professorship, according to the school.
Officials say the professorship connects Georgetown College to its Baptist roots and will allow students the unique opportunity to learn about Baptist history and theology.
The college says its Baptist roots trace back to its inception in 1829, when the Kentucky General Assembly chartered the Kentucky Baptist Education Society with the intent to establish a Baptist college in Kentucky.
Officials say a search committee has been created to identify the ideal candidate to fill the professorship before the fall semester of 2020.
