    The Waldron Center

    David Waldron dreamed of providing a resource to emphasize family business and entrepreneurship.


The Waldron Center for Entrepreneurship and Family Business was created to focus on entrepreneurial academics and competitions for students and as well as business development for startups and family-owned businesses.

Our Mission

The Waldron Center supports entrepreneurship and family business through academic engagement, workshops, & outreach to build a community of innovation.

About the Waldrons

The Waldron Center is funded by David and Betsy Waldron of Murfressboro, Tennessee. Waldron, a 1976 Harding graduate, returned to a family business after college. His desire to create a resource at the University emphasizing family business and entrepreneurship led to the establishment of the center. David and brothers Charles and Greg operate Waldron Enterprises.

David and Betsy Waldron enjoy the dedication of the Waldron Center September 9, 2016, with Dr. Bruce McLarty, center.
