Lubbock Christian University is celebrating a $1 million donation to support a new teaching position.
David Fraze will hold that position. Fraze says the gift will help the university support the development of faith in young students.
"We're losing half of our students," Fraze said. "When they leave high school, they're walking away from faith and this gift enables us to train our ministers and to do some original research on turning that tide. So that students will embrace their faith when they leave home."
The donation will provide resources for faculty development and student scholarships.
