Stark Development Corporation donates 50K to DSU Heritage Foundation
DICKINSON, N.D. – Stark Development Corporation presented the DSU Heritage Foundation with a $50,000 gift Tuesday, March 15, 2016. This donation is a significant contribution to the foundation’s Cornerstone campaign which will fund student scholarships for the next three years.
The Cornerstone Traditions Campaign will support pass-through scholarships for Dickinson State University. These types of scholarships are merit based and are developed to promote academic success and retention at DSU and will be open to all students based on established academic standards.
These funds will be used to help the DSU Heritage Foundation reach its goal of raising $1,100,000 in scholarships for the 2016-2018 academic years.
Stark Development Corporation recognizes the importance of the university and foundation and want to demonstrate their support for both. “Dickinson State is important to the economic growth of all Southwest North Dakota,” said Gaylon Baker, executive vice president of Stark Development Corporation. “The knowledge and skills that DSU students gain has sustained businesses and business leaders for many years.”
The Cornerstone campaign is an instrumental piece of the DSU Heritage Foundation’s efforts to revitalize support for the university. “This donation is a great gift that demonstrates how much the community believes in Dickinson State University,” said Ty Orton, executive director of the DSU Heritage Foundation.
