Williams Receives $215,000 From Harty Estate

Williams Baptist College has received a $215,000 gift from the estate of alumnus Norman Harty. Harty, who was from Dexter, Mo., passed away in August. He was a 1962 graduate of Williams and a longtime supporter of the school, which will become Williams Baptist University later this year.

Interim President Dr. Kenneth Startup received the check from Justin Daubert. Daubert is the compliance officer at First Commercial Bank in Dexter, where Harty’s corporation has a controlling interest.

“Mr. Harty thought that a Christian focused education was very important. He always spoke very highly of Williams, his experience there, and how great the current staff and administration are. Mr. Harty would tell me how he thought it was always important to put God first, and he knew Williams did that,” Daubert said.     MORE
