Central Baptist College announced Monday that the school has accepted a challenge grant in the amount of $750,000 from the Mabee Foundation.

President Terry Kimbrow told attendees of a press conference held on campus that $1.8 million in 12 months was the target for the grant’s success.

The grant will be used to help fund the construction of a 38,000-square-foot academic building and to renovate and expand the existing library building.

The two projects are in the first phase of the school’s “Vision 2020: A Miracle in the Making,” in which it is hoped that 10 major projects will be completed in 10 years to accommodate an enrollment of 2,020 students.
