College of Engineering Why people give
Steven M. Quist (‘68 ME)
Principal, Blackmore Peak Partners
I give to the MSU COE because when I got into the workforce as an engineer I found that my education was as good as or better than that of new graduates from the top tier schools–MIT, Stanford, Purdue, Minnesota, Michigan, etc.
Michael P. Sanderson (B.S. CE ‘94, M.S. CE ‘96)
Principal/Managing Director, Sanderson Stewart
Having realized some measure of professional success, I feel very strongly as an alumnus that I have a responsibility to contribute to the success of future generations of MSU engineers.
Linda Thompson (‘84 ChE)
As the world becomes more technically complex, we must produce citizens who can support it in a socially responsible manner. We are proud to support MSU COE’s effort in training new generations of such engineers.
Helene M. Michael ('85 MET)
737 Dir. of Mfg. Operations
The Boeing Company
The reason I support the College of Engineering is two-fold. First, while earning a superb degree, I was mentored by caring professors who knew their students and loved teaching. My education has served me very well in my career at Boeing, so I want to express my gratitude.
Second, we need to stimulate interest in Engineering with a heavy emphasis on practical application. Only with high quality teaching in facilities that reflect industry standards can we ensure that graduating students are ready to enter the workforce. It is my pleasure to support MSU and the College of Engineering!
Lindsay Anderson ('83 ChE)
Dir. Seattle/Renton Field Operations
The Boeing Company
I give to MSU College of Engineering because I want to give back to a place that provided me with a great education. In so doing, I want to ensure that the COE continues to do what it does best; teach undergraduate engineers. Hopefully my gift can help continue the tradition. The quality of the education offered continues to be one of the most underappreciated assets in Montana.
