Peach State Federal Credit Union has made a $50,000 donation to Piedmont College benefiting the Dr. Robert H. Wainberg Natural Sciences Research Fund. The endowment will support research for Piedmont College students majoring in natural sciences, including biology, chemistry and environmental science.
“Research is an important part of the learning process for science majors. This generous donation will enable the college to continue to provide our students the ability to acquire hands-on experience with their research projects,” said Piedmont College President James F. Mellichamp. “We look forward to seeing the positive impact this will have on our students and faculty.”
Wainberg, for whom the research fund is named, is a professor of biology at Piedmont, where he has taught since 1988.
