Final Payment Made On Site

SSAB, formerly Ipsco Steel, recently presented their last $25,000 pledge payment to the University of South Alabama College of Engineering on site at the College’s upcoming new home, Shelby Hall: Engineering and Computing Sciences.
SSAB committed to the $125,000 gift in 2006. Two areas within Shelby Hall will be named for SSAB - the Engineering Conference Room and the Mechanical Engineering Materials Testing Laboratory. Each room will feature a special inscribed donor appreciation plaque to recognize this gift from SSAB. In addition, the company will be recognized on the
College’s Honor Wall of Donors, to be located in the atrium of the new building. The funds from this gift will support the Engineering Excellence Endowment, an endowed fund created to help the College’s pursuit of academic excellence. The fund allows Dean John Steadman to continually assess priorities and goals, and direct funding to special areas of opportunity and/or concern. SSAB’s gift will also support the purchase of laboratory equipment in the new building.


Borg Family Donates Vast Mineral Collection
The College of Arts and Sciences Department of Earth Sciences recently received a large mineral collection from the family of the late Alan Borg. “The 4,000 pounds of geological specimens and related materials were collected by Mr. Borg throughout his lifetime and includes a wonderful range of fluorescent minerals,” said Dr. Doug Haywick, Associate Professor of Earth Sciences. “With the donation of this collection, the University has inherited what is likely the best collection of fluorescent minerals on the Gulf Coast.”
Ms. Betsy Borg said she wanted her late husband’s collection to find a home in an educational setting, due to his lifelong devotion to education and rock collecting. Ms. Borg said she is proud that her husband’s passion for minerals will be remembered by the students who will use and appreciate his collection. Dr. Haywick and one of the department’s graduate students traveled to Ms. Borg’s home in North Carolina to bring the collection to USA. “Now, students are in the process of sorting and cataloging the vast Borg collection. When archiving is completed, specimens from the collection will be available for classroom instruction, research, and museum display. The scope of the collection allows students a vast wealth of specimens they haven’t had in the past,” Dr. Haywick said.
