Fitness Center dedication

Returning alumni joined campus officials and student athletes for the dedication of the Missouri S&T Fitness Complex during Homecoming festivities in October.

Funding for the renovation of the 35,000-square-foot facility was provided through a $1 million gift from the Anheuser-Busch Foundation, a $250,000 pledge from Roger Dorf, ME’65, and his wife, Sandy, and a $1.25 million match by students, who devoted an existing capital fee for facilities to the project.
The formal dedication ceremony, held outside the facility’s glass-front entrance, included remarks by Mark Mullin, director of athletics at S&T; John Mills, ME’85, director of brewery operations at Anheuser-Busch; Dorf, retired vice president and general manager of Cisco’s Broadband Wireless Unit; and Stephanie Rostad, a senior in civil engineering and architectural engineering and student body president.
Following the ceremony, guests toured the state-of-the-art facility, which includes dedicated varsity fitness areas in addition to the general fitness area.
