Andy Kattos of ServisFirst talks about supporting HudsonAlpha

People give to HudsonAlpha for a multitude of reasons. Andy Kattos, president of ServisFirst Bank, explains why he supports HudsonAlpha.

HudsonAlpha founding board member honored

Linda Smith, wife of late Huntsville business pioneer and HudsonAlpha founding board member Mark Smith, has made a $1 million donation to the institute.

“My reasons for the gift are two-fold,” said Smith. “First, my late husband Mark was very supportive of the institute and deeply involved in the building of the facility, so I wanted to do this in memory of him. Secondly, this gift will fund a scientist who does cancer research; and that clinched it for me.”  This scientist will have the honorary title of the Mark Smith Investigator.

Not one, but three good Samaritans recently came forward to support the long-term success of the not-for-profit HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology. Each has quietly provided a $500,000 gift to build an endowment fund that will play a critical role in the institute’s fiscal growth and stability.
