Dr_Hubbard_2As part of the 2015 President’s Society dinner, Columbia College President Dr. Scott Dalrymple announced last Thursday evening that Christian College alumna Dr. Sally Hubbard ’57 has made a $110,000 leadership pledge to her alma mater. This gift will establish an endowed scholarship for students seeking degrees in Science.

“We are extremely appreciative of Dr. Hubbard’s generosity and support of Columbia College,” Dalrymple said. “Her passion for higher education is commendable and this gift will assist our students in their pursuit of scientific exploration.”

Hubbard has immersed herself in education her entire life. After earning her associate’s degree at Christian College, Hubbard attended Montana State University and later earned her medical PhD from the University of Missouri School of Medicine. She completed her internship at the University of Texas at Galveston and is board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine. Hubbard is also staff emeritus at the Taylor Health and Wellness Center at Missouri State University.

“It was my zoology professor here at the college, Dr. J. Harold Long, who saw my potential and convinced me to study medicine,” Hubbard said. “I know this science scholarship will allow students to continue their education and realize their dreams.”

Dr. Hubbard was a member of several organizations including the Ozark Society and Outstanding Young Women of America. As an advocate for staying active, her interests include whitewater rafting, canoeing, conservation and ecology.
