Virtual SpireFest Raises $225,000 for Student Scholarships

For the second year in a row, SpireFest transformed into a virtual event. And, as they always do, University of Saint Mary alumni and friends came out in droves – raising more than $225,000 for student scholarships.

From April 12-17, alumni and friends gathered online to bid on auction items, view exclusive videos, and participate in Fund-a-Scholar. The virtual event culminated on April 17 during the video premiere, which included messages from emcee Dr. Alison Banikowski, C’75; an update from University President Sister Diane Steele; and scholarship stories from exercise science major Macy Walker and alumna Margaret Richards, C’00. Board of Trustees member Fred Tromans also received the Saint Marian of the Year award.
