A $1 million gift from an anonymous donor enabled the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor to establish an endowed scholarship that will provide full tuition for two nursing students each year. The Loye White Bray Endowed Scholarship will benefit students with demonstrated financial need, allowing them to complete a degree they otherwise could not afford. Nursing is the largest major at UMHB, with 484 students enrolled in the program this year.
