Columbia, SC: Robert "Bob" McNair, husband of Janice Suber McNair '59, passed away this evening. Together, the McNairs were generous supporters of the students of Columbia College. They provided opportunities that crossed all walks of the student experience through McNair Hall, Janet Alexander Cotter Alumnae Hall, and the Barbara Bush Center for Science & Technology. They also funded the McNair Scholars program as well as the McNair Center from Entrepreneurism. Hundreds of students at Columbia College have had their educational experience enhanced thanks to the McNairs. We are forever grateful.
