August 21, 2007

An anonymous donor contributed to the University of Minnesota, Crookston Baseball and Mark Olsonawski Football scholarship endowments in the amounts of $1,400 (baseball) and $2,100 (football).


The university is looking for ten $140 matching gifts for the baseball endowment and fifteen $140 matching gifts for the Mark Olsonawski Football endowment.


“We are very grateful for the substantial contributions to the Mark Olsonawski and baseball scholarship endowments,” says Golden Eagle Athletic Director Stephanie Helgeson. “This helps secure scholarship opportunities for future University of Minnesota, Crookston student athletes.”


“The University of Minnesota, Crookston Athletic Department is very thankful to this donor and greatly appreciates this contribution,” says Univerity of Minnesota, Crookston Director of Athletic Fundraising Bill Tyrrell. “We now call on our football and baseball alumni to fulfill this donation.”


Both endowments will benefit scholarships in their respective sports. Mark Olsonawski is a former Golden Eagle All-American running back and member of the U of M, Crookston Athletic Hall of Fame. He is from Hallock, Minn.
