Longtime SigEp donor and volunteer Jay Hurt, Davidson ’88, committed $5 million to his alma mater to fund innovation and entrepreneurship efforts at the school. His gift will establish The Hurt Hub@Davidson, a 23,000-square-foot facility that will host local entrepreneurs and innovative companies as well as students and faculty. The gift also supports ongoing programs, operations and the start of an endowment. The project is unique for a small liberal arts college, but that’s what attracted Hurt, who has a history of launching new initiatives as a businessman and philanthropist. With SigEp, Hurt co-founded the Ruck Leadership Institute in 1998 and established the Frank Rader Memorial Wrestling Award in 2015.
