CLEMSON, S.C. — (AP) — Clemson University has received its largest ever gift, a $60-million donation to name its new business school.
The Post and Courier reports the donor is W.O. “Billy” Powers, a South Carolina businessman who made his fortune through his Florence-based construction and property management businesses.
The gift, made along with his wife Ann, marks the largest one-time donation to a business school in the state.
Clemson’s College of Business has more than 5,000 students, and business is the fastest-growing major on campus.
The college will now be known as the Wilbur O. and Ann Powers College of Business.
