RALEIGH, N.C. [05.24.04] — To coincide with its 150th anniversary in 2007, Peace College in Raleigh is testing the waters for a capital campaign that could total $30 million to $40 million.

After setting a goal based on a feasibility study being conducted by Witzleben & Associates in Chapel Hill, the school likely will begin the quiet phase of the campaign this fall or early in 2005, with a public kickoff in 2007, says Sandy Scarlett, vice president of external relations and chief development officer.

Most of the funds raised would be used for endowment, she says.

Peace also has named Sandy Briscar, former director of college relations at Floyd College in Rome, Ga., as director of college relations and special assistant to Peace President Laura Carpenter Bingham.

As part of her new job, Briscar will serve as a link between the president’s office and the development and alumni offices.
