Gift from Alumni Couple Launches New USA Center for Environmental Resiliency

 The University of South Alabama has received a gift of $250,000 from alumni Dr. and Mrs. Steven H. Stokes to start a new Center for Environmental Resiliency.

Through the Center, the University will promote scholarly achievement and foster knowledge to guide responsible policy-making and business development toward a prosperous and healthy future for all residents of the Gulf Coast region.

"We hope to establish a collaborative institute of scientists, environmentalists and industry leaders where technology and techniques can be developed that will mitigate the adverse affect of human activity on the Gulf," Dr. Stokes said. "We hope the gift will serve as a catalyst to establish an institute that will allow us to prepare for future events that threaten the Gulf Coast."

In the past, Dr. and Mrs. Stokes have given nearly $2.7 million to the University through gifts and matching funds, more than any other alumni couple. Dr. Stokes, who received his medical degree from USA in 1980, has served as a trustee since 1993. Angelia Stokes received her business degree from USA in 1979.  Full Story
