SMU to dedicate expanded theology quad Sept. 11

Elizabeth Perkins Prothro HallThe SMU community is invited to celebrate the dedication of Elizabeth Perkins Prothro Hall and the expanded, renovated Perkins School of Theology quad at 12:15 p.m. Sept. 11 near Perkins Chapel at 5901 Bishop Boulevard.

The Perkins-Prothro family of Wichita Falls, whose financial support of the seminary spans three generations, gave $6 million to the school in January 2007 – 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 commons building to be named in honor of the late Elizabeth Perkins Prothro.

A lunch and open house will follow the dedication. In addition, SMU will honor Mrs. Prothro’s contributions to the University with a celebration of her life.
