LAWRENCEVILLE, Va. - St. Paul's College is $300,000 short of its goal to raise the $5 million necessary to help ensure its survival.
President Eddie Moore Jr. made the announcement Wednesday and issued an appeal for additional donations.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch ( http://bit.ly/LJkIh5) reports that the historically black college in Lawrenceville launched its "Now & Forever" campaign six months ago to raise $5 million to demonstrate its financial stability to its accrediting agency.
Moore says the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges will meet June 18-21 in Chantilly to determine if the school's efforts warrant reaccreditation.
The college, founded in 1888, is in its second and final allowable year of probation.
