The previously announced major gift by Simmons First National Bank to the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff was revealed today to be $2.5 million.

It’s the largest gift ever made to UAPB. It will be spent to improve football and baseball facilities.

Specifically, the money will pay for a new football stadium scoreboard and turf, along with completion of the baseball pavilion at the Torii Hunter Baseball and Softball Complex. You can see the improvements here.
