A family from Midland has donated $810,000 to fund student scholarships and faculty development at Lubbock Christian University.

Bill, Mildred and Lewis Wayne Crozier designated the contribution to 3 major colleges and departments. The bulk of it, $700,000, was used to set up a professorship in the LCU School of Business accounting department. Alongside this, the Alfred and Patricia Smith College of Biblical Studies received $100,000 to endow student scholarships and LCU School of Education received $10,000 to do the same.

This new professorship will enable Lubbock Christian's School of Business accounting program to supplement faculty salaries, provide professional development opportunities for faculty members and student scholarships.

LCU President Dr. Scott McDowell said:

The Crozier family’s significant investment into the students and faculty at Lubbock Christian University is a testament to their belief in Christian higher education [...] The university continues to teach courses that are academically rigorous and relevant in today’s market and the gift will bring great momentum to those colleges.

Vice President of University Advancement at LCU Raymond Richardson said:

Bill, Mildred, and Lewis were all faithful members of Fairmont Park Church of Christ in Midland, TX. The Croziers loved the Lord and demonstrated their faith in the life they lived. We are grateful and humbled for their generosity and support of LCU. They will be remembered in a very special way at Lubbock Christian University well into the future.
