Black Mountain College Festival 2016 - Profile #BMCF16 #sauknights

Kurt Przybilla
Have you ever played NanoSpace online to learn about atoms and molecules? Have you ever played with a Tetra Top—tomorrow’s toys today? A Tetra Top is a spinning top with more than one axis of spin, inspired by the works of Buckminster Fuller. If you haven’t, then you should. If you have, then St. Andrews is pleased to announce that Kurt Przybilla, the inventor of NanoSpace and Tetra Tops, will be visiting the campus this coming November for the Black Mountain College Festival. He will be presenting a science project called “Fuller Synergy Geometry.” He is also the co-creator, writer, and producer of the Molecularium Project at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. If you’re a science geek, then this is an evening for you! Saturday, November 5, 7:00 PM, Morgan-Jones Science Building. Mark your calendar! Check him out at: http://ow.ly/vNlm301iEg5

Laurinburg Area Campaign enters final month #sauknights #StAndrewsDayOfGiving

LAURINBURG, N.C. – With less than a month left in the 2016 Laurinburg Area Campaign, contributions and pledges have totaled $378,467 – 76 percent of the half million dollar goal.

“Our volunteers are doing a phenomenal job following up with their contacts,” said Beacham McDougald, co-chair of the campaign along with his wife Lynn. “St. Andrews has always had a close relationship with Laurinburg and the support of our community with the university is shown through this annual campaign.”

The campaign is fueled by its key volunteers: Mac Doubles, Terry Garner, Wayne Hobbs, Lee Howell, Richard Massey, Ken Nichols, Anne Todd, Carol Whitehead, and Emily Womble.

The $500,000 target accounts for 20% of the University’s annual fundraising revenue. Put together with all sources of revenue, St. Andrews has been able to strategically invest the funds in capital improvements, faculty and staff support, and student scholarships.

“The biggest investment we make is in our students,” said Campus President Paul Baldasare. “We provide institutional financial aid to students who we believe will succeed at St. Andrews.”

This money is distributed in the form of scholarships for honors, academics, pipe band, athletics, and creative writing to name a few. In turn, these students are investing in our community with hundreds of hours of community service throughout the academic year, including volunteer work at local schools and Habitat for Humanity.

In addition to students’ contributions in the form of community service, spending by St. Andrews students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors in Laurinburg has an annual impact of over $26 million on the local economy.

“A contribution to St. Andrews is an investment in Laurinburg and Scotland County,” said McDougald. “The value of St. Andrews to our community is not only financial, but also cultural and good public relations. Thousands of people beyond the borders of Scotland County have a positive view of Laurinburg because it’s the home of St. Andrews.”

Laurinburg Area Campaign Tops Goal #sauknights

LAURINBURG, N.C. – The Laurinburg Area Campaign once again exceeded its annual goal of raising $500,000 in support of St. Andrews. This is the 21st consecutive year that the local community has met its goal.

“It is truly gratifying that over 300 local people and businesses come together to insure that St. Andrews is once again able to surpass the goal for 2016,” said co-chair Beacham McDougald.

The final total reached $506,949.30 including 238 gifts from 316 donors.
The Campaign was co-chaired by McDougald and his wife Lynn. Key supporters included volunteers: Mac Doubles, Terry Garner, Wayne Hobbs, Lee Howell, Richard Massey, Ken Nichols, Anne Todd, Carol Whitehead, and Emily Womble.

“This year is another great example of the extraordinary support that St. Andrews receives annually from the Laurinburg community,” said Campus President Paul Baldasare. “Our volunteers worked hard throughout the spring to achieve and exceed the goal.”

The funds raised account for 20% of the St. Andrews annual fundraising revenue. Combined with other resources, St. Andrews will be able to improve facilities on the campus, support faculty and staff, and supply student scholarships.

“Truly we are blessed,” said McDougald. “St. Andrews injects millions of dollars into our local economy and the Laurinburg Area Campaign is undoubtedly the best investment that we make to our community.”

This mutual relationship has served St. Andrews and the Laurinburg/Scotland County community well for over 50 years.

#StAndrewsDayOfGiving Goal: Meet or Beat $7,000 (our last day of giving amount!) Current amount today: $2,716

Give now: https://www.sa.edu/donation-forms/give-to-st-andrews

Where does my money go?
- It helps today's students afford a St. Andrews education when many of them would not otherwise be able to have this opportunity.
- It enables us to hire and retain great faculty who are deeply dedicated to teaching and mentoring students.
- It helps maintain the campus of this magical place, so that it will always be here for our alumni, for the Laurinburg/Scotland County community and for generations of students to come.
