SMU’s Perkins School of Theology celebrates the new academic year by breaking ground for a project to improve its existing facilities as well as create new ones. The festivities begin at 11:45 a.m. Sept. 7 in the theology quad.

The Perkins-Prothro family of Wichita Falls, whose financial support of the seminary spans three generations, gave $6 million to the school in January — about half of the funds required to renovate Kirby Hall and Selecman Hall, both of which were originally built in the early ’50s, and to construct a 28,000-square-foot commons building to be named in honor of Elizabeth Perkins Prothro.
