80's Legends Athletic Scholarship
One of the highlights of Montana Tech Homecoming weekend 2017 was the reunion of over 75 football players from the 1980's ranging from the class of 1983-1987. For many it was the first time they had been back to campus since they donned an Oredigger jersey, over 30 years earlier.
The weekend produced fellowship, rekindled friendships and renewed commitment to Montana Tech and Oredigger Athletics. Out of this commitment, a challenge has been made to establish a scholarship in honor of the student athletes of the 1980's to benefit the student athletes of today in all sports, with $12,610 pledged.
The goal is to raise $30,000. This allows us to award $5,000 this year( 5 $1,000 scholarships), and at the same time build the scholarship to an endowed level of $25,000 so that it can benefit Oredigger student athletes participating in any sport competing for years to come.
We invite you to celebrate the long history of Oredigger Football and invest in our current student athletes by making a donation today to the 80's Legends Athletic Scholarship.
Along with your gift, please help us spread the word! Share this project on social media, by email and tell your friends! GO DIGGERS!!!
