Siloam Springs, Arkansas (January 31, 2011) — Liberty Bank of Siloam Springs has made a $25,000 gift to John Brown University for the Bill George Arena.
“Liberty Bank has been a long-time supporter of JBU and our Athletics program,” said Dr. Jim Krall, vice president for university advancement. “We are thankful for their commitment to JBU and this community.”
The 38,000 square-foot facility has provided much needed athletic and gathering space for the university. Previously JBU hosted athletic events in the nearly 50-year-old Murray Sells Athletic Center, which seated less than 1,000 people. The new arena has already provided much needed space for graduation, the Phillips, Craig and Dean concert and a special chapel service with Franklin Graham.
