Judson College trustees met Dec. 31 and greenlighted the 2021 spring semester following a successful end-of-the-year effort to raise financial support.
Judson College President Mark Tew issued an appeal on Dec. 15 for unrestricted cash donations to help the college begin and finish the 2021 spring semester.
The first goal of $500,000 was surpassed on Dec. 28. Total gifts and pledges are nearing the $1.5 million goal set by the college.
