In another notable success, Dr. David Atkinson '99, a Dallas-based psychiatrist, challenged the class of 1999 to produce 19.99 new donors for the 21st Century Challenge in addition to those who had already given. That challenge was met in almost 24 hours, and Atkinson donated $1,999 in honor of the occasion.

The faculty staff participation rate is also at its highest in eight years at 70.32 percent.
