Centre Associate of the Year 1990
Mary Bingham, along with her late husband, Barry Bingham, Sr., has set a standard for civic leadership and philanthropic support that is well known beyond the borders of the state that she has served in so many ways for many years. Centre College is fortunate and honored to be among the institutions that have enjoyed Mary and Barry Bingham’s support.
While the College has reaped many benefits from its association with Mary and Barry Bingham, the most tangible evidence of that relationship is Bingham Hall, the recently constructed student residence hall that was made possible by a $1,000,000 contribution from the Binghams. That contribution was one of the largest individual commitments received during The Campaign for Centre and met one of the Campaign’s most critical needs.
For her generous support of Centre College and for her marvelous example of civic responsibility, Centre College is pleased to honor Mary Bingham as a 1990 Centre Associate of the Year.
