Ole Miss Gets $5 Million Dollar Donation

Ole Miss has received $5 million from two sources to benefit its athletics program. The university announced Monday that FedEx will contribute $2.5 million to enhance the facility that already bears its name, the FedEx Student-Athlete Success Center. And, the school received an anonymous gift of another $2.5 million that will also go toward the FedEx Center.
    
Ole Miss Athletics Director Ross Bjork told The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal  that he appreciated the gifts, noting the Center is important in the overall development of the university's athletes.
    
The Center is a 24,500-square-foot building in the northwest corner of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium that currently includes offices for academic counselors, a learning specialist and life skills as well as conference rooms, group tutoring rooms, computer labs and more.
