Seven alumni, including three Miner Alumni Association board members, have been named to Missouri S&T’s sesquicentennial advisory committee. The group is made up of graduates, students, faculty, staff and community members who are involved in planning the university’s upcoming 150th anniversary celebration.

Missouri S&T will celebrate its sesquicentennial — or 150th anniversary — during the 2020–21 academic year. Plans call for a kickoff event during Homecoming 2020 as well as a commemorative, coffee table-style history book, a complementary website and video, and other special events.

Alumni serving on the committee are:

  • Genevieve Sutton Bodnar, MetE’98, MinE’01, of Bunker, Mo., who is employed by Doe Run Co.
  • Lister Florence, CE’95, MS IST’06, CSci’07, of Rolla, a member of the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on African-American Recruitment and Retention and the S&T Board of Trustees, who is employed by the U.S. Geological Survey.
