Christian Philanthropist Gives UC Gift to Construct Residence Hall


WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. - University of the Cumberlands announces a recent gift from Christian philanthropist, Lenora Fuson Harth, to construct Lenora Fuson Harth Hall, in loving memory of her daughter, Deborah Leah Harth. When completed, this majestic residence hall will contain 25,842 square feet of floor space to accommodate 96 female students in 12 suites. Each suite will contain four bedrooms, a commons room and a bathroom.

Mrs. Harth, originally from Williamsburg, now resides at Fremont Place, Los Angeles, California. For years she has assisted students at University of the Cumberlands. Her fame has long been associated with and involved in the development of the University. Mr. H. H. Fuson, Lenora Fuson Harth’s brother, served as a Trustee of the University for 41 years.


“The Fuson family is prominent, and we are grateful to receive this stellar gift from Mrs. Harth with which to construct this needed residence hall. Words simply fail to communicate our gratitude because this is an answered prayer and a dream come true,” said University President Jim Taylor.

University of the Cumberlands, located in Williamsburg, Kentucky, is a private liberal arts college in its 118th year of operation. Cumberlands offers four undergraduate degrees in 37 major fields of study, 30 minors and nine pre-professional programs, graduate degrees and certifications in education as well as online and accelerated, nontraditional programs for adults.
