UT Tyler Receives $25,000 Donation

UT Tyler was presented with a $25,000 check today.

Petrofac gave the school the donation. The money will be used to establish an endowment fund for the college of engineering and computer science.

"It's very special because very few people will give money where there are no direct string attached where there is flexibility with the money and that's so valuable," says University of Texas at Tyler President Dr. Rodney Mabry.

Dr. Mabry says the funds may be used to help pay for additional staff or equipment.
