Dan and Emilyn Childs Sanders
On February 1st, a ceremony was held to dedicate the Sanders Science Library. Furman trustee Dan Sanders and his wife Emilyn Childs Sanders, loyal philanthropists of Furman and the Greenville community, named the science library in honor of their children and grandchildren. In her opening remarks, Director of Libraries, Janis Bandelin, said that the library continues to be a place where students go, even in the digital age. "It continues to be a place for study and collaboration, and a haven for reflection and inspiration." The dedicatory address was presented by President Rod Smolla, followed by remarks from both Dan and Emilyn. President Smolla recognized the generous contribution that the Milliken Foundation made to Furman, in honor and recognition of Dan for his eight years of service on the Milliken & Company board, including stints as lead director and non-executive chairman.
