Miners give back

April is Philanthropy Month at Missouri S&T. It’s a time to celebrate giving, growth, pride and progress — and the philanthropic spirit that unites Miner Nation. All month, the campus will be turning the spotlight on the vital role philanthropy plays in our society with a number of on-campus events.

20140318-Sheron-Thomas-015At the second annual Battle of the Brains Scholarship Banquet and Trivia Night, hosted by the Miner Alumni Association and Missouri S&T, representatives from student organizations will compete alongside alumni donors for a chance to take home a total of $1,100 for a philanthropic event, activity or donation of their choosing. Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) selected and recruited the organizations for the April 25 event.

Other events this month include academy and alumni board meetings, and the Woman of the Year celebration.
