Christo, who has been involved with Darton for several years, will now work with the college on an official capacity. His role will be to work with the new athletic director, who is expected to be named by the end of the month, on developing and directing an ongoing fundraising program.

Christo's first matter of business in his new job was to present district attorney Ken Hodges, the chairman of the Darton College foundation, with a 100-thousand dollar check.

Christo says the money, which came from an anonymous donor, will be used as an endowment towards athletic scholarships.

"It should last forever and as we get more and more money donated to the endowment then naturally its going to increase the income and money that might have been used on scholarships can go somewhere else," Christo said.
