HUNTINGTON -

The Marshall University Office of Development surpassed its fundraising goal in June.

The one-month campaign called "MU Challenge 630 by 6/30" raised more than $78,000, including two endowed scholarship gifts totaling $32,000, according to Griffin Talbott, director of annual giving.

The goal was for 630 donors to make contributions during the month of June. Overall, 648 donors gave to the campaign.

Dr. Greg Crews and Dr. Dallas Nibert, who have a family dentistry practice in Huntington, agreed to contribute $10,000 when the goal of 630 donors was met.

 "The MU Challenge 630 by 6/30 was a huge success," Talbott said in a news release. "Thanks to Drs. Greg Crews and Dallas Nibert. They were the first to offer a challenge gift."
