S&T honored for community engagement

Missouri S&T received the Great Lakes Valley Conference’s NCAA Division II Community Engagement Award of Excellence for the 2010-11 athletic season. The Miner program was cited for its Military Appreciation Day activities in October.


One institution from every Division II conference and one conference as a whole were recognized by the NCAA for work to build bridges in their communities. Each institution that won an award received $500 from the NCAA.
Missouri S&T won the award for its part in hosting Military Appreciation Day Oct. 30 in conjunction with its home football game against Urbana University. The U.S. Army base at Fort Leonard Wood is located approximately 30 miles southwest of Rolla. Officials from the university, military base and city of Rolla were all involved in the coordination of the event, which is usually scheduled for the home game closest to Veterans Day.
Missouri S&T also played men’s basketball and Lady Miner volleyball exhibition games on the Fort Leonard Wood base.
