imaging technology to understand more about canine and feline brain

STARKVILLE, Miss.--A $12.3 million gift from Mississippi State alumni Tommy and Terri Nusz of Houston, Texas, will benefit multiple academic colleges and units at the 135-year-old university.
The gift continues the Nusz' support of the land-grant institution and is one of the largest to date for the MSU Foundation's current fundraising endeavor, Infinite Impact: The Mississippi State University Campaign.
"This leadership-level commitment from MSU alumni Tommy and Terri Nusz will have a far-reaching impact in helping Mississippi State University provide leadership and advance its mission of education, outreach, and research," said MSU President Mark E. Keenum.
Continuing their focus on equine health, a portion of their gift assists the College of Veterinary Medicine with an endowed position known as the Terri Nusz Endowed Equine Professorship. Earnings from the $1 million endowment will provide a faculty holder salary supplement and support in teaching and research. Terri Nusz oversees the family's various interests in equine sport including TnT Equine Partners, Amalaya Investments, and Oasis Stables, and they want to encourage faculty efforts in equine study. more...
