The Troy University Athletics Department recently received a $250,000 Leadership Gift from Mike and Cindy Dodds of Luverene, Ala., Troy Director of Athletics John Hartwell announced on Tuesday. 

"We are very thankful to Mike and Cindy Dodds for their generous gift to the Troy Athletics Department," Hartwell said.

The Dodds' gift will provide funding for facility enhancement projects at Veterans Memorial Stadium, the Troy Softball Complex and a new golf practice facility. 

"We've always wanted to do it and now was the right time," the Dodds said.
