Toyota of TH makes donation to SMWC


VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in western Vigo County received a very generous gift on Tuesday.

Toyota of Terre Haute gave the school a donation of $50,000. The money will go towards the new sports and recreation center the university is building.

Toyota presented the check to President Dottie King, Ph.D. during a ceremony at Guerin Hall.

Officials say they were happy to be able to help.

“I think Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College is a very important part of our community,” said Scott Jaeger, Toyota of Terre Haute president. “The sports and recreation center was a need for the school. For students, but also for what it’s doing for the community in terms of wellness.”

The Jeanne Knoerlee Sports and Recreation Center will house a 1,000 seat gym as well as athletic offices and practice facilities. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
