Medaille Celebrates Public Phase of Comprehensive Campaign
On September 30, Medaille College kicked off the public phase of its Partnerships for Opportunity Comprehensive Campaign with a celebration that recognized its benefactors and community partners for their commitment to help students succeed.
The campaign, which has reached 90% of its $4.5 million dollar goal, was launched to renovate the Laboratory & Science Center of Tomorrow (LSCT) and to create student scholarships, academic enrichment programs and student support services.
The celebration included the unveiling of the M&T Bank Student Success Center, Walsh Duffield Companies, Inc. Learning Lab, Eastman Machine Lounge, and the Dr. Nicholas Trbovich Fireside Lounge. Guests toured the newly named areas on campus as they learned about the student support services that Medaille provides for its students.
Robert Gioia, president of the John R. Oishei Foundation, served as the event’s keynote speaker. He stated, “Medaille has had much success engaging students with their community under Dr. Richard T. Jurasek’s innovative and dedicated leadership. Through programs like EQUIP, students are being prepared to succeed in college, contribute to their community, and become our region’s future leaders.”
Other speakers included Pastor Darius Pridgen ’07, president, Buffalo Common Council and member of Medaille’s board of trustees, as well as Dr. Brenda Fredette, chair of the Division of Veterinary and Natural Sciences at Medaille. The evening’s mistress of ceremonies was Stephanie Calhoun ’03, assistant attorney general with the New York State Office of the Attorney General, who credits her career success to the support she received as a student from Medaille’s TRiO Student Support Services.
Investing in the Partnerships for Opportunity Comprehensive Campaign will impact Buffalo’s economic development as the College prepares its students to become tomorrow’s workforce. Learn more about the campaign by visiting campaign.medaille.edu.
