Forcht’s Make Generous Donation to UC

 


Williamsburg, KY. - On Tuesday, August 20, Terry and Marion Forcht presented the University of the Cumberlands’ (UC) president, Dr. Jim Taylor, with a generous donation to assist with upcoming costs and building expenses on campus.

“This donation and support means a lot to us and the entire institution,” said Dr. Taylor gratefully.

Terry Forcht, the Forcht Group of Kentucky’s CEO and founder, and wife Marion, who currently serves on UC’s board of trustees, met Dr. Taylor in front of the Terry and Marion Forcht Medical Wing on UC’s campus for an informal ceremony. The check received by the university was in the amount of $100,000.00 and Forcht told Dr. Taylor that the donation was to be used for anything they needed it for but that he and his wife wanted to help him with his new entrance on campus.

“We have watched the progress of the University of the Cumberlands,” said Terry Forcht. “It means a lot to us. It got us started and Dr. Taylor has been a huge supporter of what we do so we really want to see him succeed.”

“The Forcht’s are one of our largest donors in the history of the institution,” said Dr. Taylor. “They have done so much for so many people and we are just one of their charities. We are very grateful for all they have done for us.”
