Miners give back

Missouri S&T and the Miner Alumni Association hosted the second annual Battle of the Brains Scholarship Banquet and Trivia Night on April 25 as part of Philanthropy Month. The evening was filled with recognition and fellowship as donors dined with the students who benefit from their generosity. More than 200 students attended to thank our generous donors. After dinner, student organizations competed alongside alumni and donors for a chance to take home the title of “Biggest Brainiac.” The History Club’s team took first place and won $500. Delta Omicron Lambda won the $400 second-place prize and Alpha Phi Alpha won the $200 third-place prize. Winning teams will use the prize money for a philanthropic event, activity or donation of their choosing.
