Our Scholarship at Work

As part of reunion activities in past years, the class of 1974 endowed a scholarship that has since helped students to make the most of a wonderful opportunity to attend St. Thomas. Below is a note of gratitude from a recent recipient!

“I want to offer my sincere appreciation for the enormous help I have received due to the Class of 1975 Endowed Scholarship. … It will be of great assistance in paying for my education and expenses at the University of St. Thomas.

I grew up in the town of Sauk Centre, Minn. I am currently pursuing a degree in Exercise Science and plan on attending graduate school following my time here.

I cannot thank you enough for providing this aid. … Know that I would not be able to attend St. Thomas had this not been made available to me. Thank you all again so much!”

As this endowed scholarship increases in size with additional annual contributions as well as investment income, more Tommies will be able to benefit from the generosity of alumni of the class of 1975. Alumni know firsthand the value of a St. Thomas education, and the university's goal is to put that opportunity within reach for all academically qualified students. Reunion giving helps the effort!

Header for the 2016 Honor Roll of Donors pages

Alumni provide critical resources to St. Thomas, and through their philanthropy, every year they show new students what it looks like to give back and pursue the common good. We gratefully acknowledge alumni who gave financial gifts last fiscal year in support of a St. Thomas education.
