The Tabor College Athletic Center has been named the Pendery Athletic Center, thanks to the generosity of Scott and Terese Pendery of Midlothian, Texas.
?Scott and Terese have never been on Tabor?s campus, but they know alumni who have graduated from Tabor,? said Jules Glanzer, president of Tabor College. ?They were so impressed with the quality of our alumni and students that they decided to make a significant contribution to Tabor.?
The contribution was made to honor Tabor alumnus Kim Wiens, his wife, Amy, and family.
?I am so honored that the Penderys wanted to recognize my family through a gift to Tabor,? Wiens said. ?What started as a business relationship has grown into a wonderful, personal friendship.?
Tabor will recognize the Penderys? contribution in early November, as they make their first trip to Hillsboro for a football game.
?Their gift is a tribute to all alumni and a model for others who are not Tabor graduates that Tabor is worthy of their investment,? Glanzer said.
A plaque outside the Pendery Athletic Center reads: ?Made possible in part by the generosity of Scott and Terese Pendery in honor of their friendship and respect for Kim and Amy Wiens.?
