An anonymous Mayville State University donor has come forward and is issuing a challenge to all Mayville State alumni and friends. The donor will match dollar-for-dollar all gifts made to fall 2020 football scholarships, up to a total of $20,000. Gifts must be received in the MSU Foundation by January 31, 2020. All funds received will help the football staff as they work to recruit and retain quality student-athletes for the MSU Comets football team. Funding will be used for scholarships awarded in the fall of 2020.
As we enter into a new year, many of us resolve to exercise more and be more physically fit. Walking is one of the ways in which this can be accomplished. Fortunately, we have indoor facilities at the university that lend themselves to this activity, since exercising outside in the winter months is nearly impossible.
