About the Donors

Dr. Charles MoormanThe Moorman Endowed Professorship is provided by the generosity and philanthropic support of Wick Moorman and Randall Moorman, who were born and raised in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Their father, Dr. Charles Moorman, worked at The University of Southern Mississippi as a professor of English, Chair of the English Department, Dean of the Graduate School, Dean of Students, and Vice President of Academic Affairs. In those roles, Dr. Moorman helped students pursue academic majors that ensured quality jobs upon graduation.

The Moorman brothers continued that legacy through the creation of the Moorman STEM Jump Scholarship Endowment and the establishment of the Moorman STEM Endowed Professorship.
