Michelin North America to present $150,000 to Troy University

Officials with Michelin North America will present a $150,000 donation to Troy University on Friday, Sept. 18, at the Dothan Campus.

The presentation will be made during a ceremony starting at 10 a.m. inside the Michelin Room in Everett Hall. The event will include remarks from Phillip Kelley, human resources manager for Michelin North America's manufacturing facility in Dothan and Dr. Skip Ames, vice chancellor for Troy University's Dothan Campus.

The donation will fund the creation of a "whiteboard room" that will serve as a center for collaboration, creativity and innovation. The room will be part of the university's Center for Entrepreneurship and Economic Innovation that will be housed inside Coleman Hall, a new academic building coming soon to the Dothan Campus.

Members of the media are invited to attend the ceremony. Please confirm your attendance by emailing clusk@troy.edu.
