Daniel Challenge Funds

 

Since 1995 the college has allocated a portion of the bequest from the Estate of Mrs. Homozel Mickel Daniel of Greenville, S.C. to match gifts for endowed scholarships for academics, athletics, and professorships. The Daniel match rewarded each new $250,000 commitment with a matching $250,000. Therefore, endowed scholarships of $500,000 have been created as a result of this unique program. To date, 39 endowed athletic scholarships have been established.

The Daniel-Georgia Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund

Established in 2011 by the Atlanta Golf committee to raise scholarship funds in honor of Russell King and Walt Sessoms. As teammates, Russell and Walt were legendary baseball players at Wofford and were intimately engaged in the success and growth of the Wofford college baseball program. The Atlanta Golf committee believes that our annual golf tournament, started in 1995, should honor these two men with all funds raised going to fund baseball scholarships at Wofford. The establishment of the Georgia alumni endowed scholarship will, over time, help us reach our goal of fully funding the baseball program at the NCAA maximum and offering deserving student athletes a chance to play with the very best.
