College of Science Student Emergency Fund
Why feature videos about Isaac Newton and the science of golf on a crowdfunding page dedicated to building emergency relief for students? For ten years we have leveraged the annual College of Science Golf Tournament into direct support for our students. This year’s tournament may be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic but by exploring the intersection of golf and science we seek to make a larger point: the mind behind Newton’s Laws of Motion was dedicated to living a “life of discovery”. This is the motto of our College and our students seek to do nothing less than live a life based on the grand adventure of science.
As we prepare for the 2020-2021 academic year, we are already hearing about the devastating financial, emotional, and physical impacts of the pandemic on many of our College of Science and Mackay School students. 100% of funds raised for our College of Science Student Emergency Fund will provide our undergraduate and graduate students with the support they need to continue their University education.
So after watching College of Science Dean Jeff Thompson explore how the Laws of Motion impact every round of golf you will ever play, please give generously to this fund. The first $5,000 we raise will be matched by Steve and Lillian Frank. Your philanthropy will be rewarded by the lives our students go on to live and by the difference they will make in their communities and in the world.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank these past College of Science Golf Tournament sponsors, who have given generously this year in continued support of our students:
- Geotemps/Geopros and Lance Taylor
- TransAction Realty, Chris Hickey and Jane Shadie
- SonRay Construction and Tom Harris
