Documentary Showing Promise of the Prairie: Education in Three Acts Emcee Les Heen, Pioneer Public Television, president and general manager Remarks........................Roger Boleman, documentary producer Mike Cihak, documentary director and editor


Enjoy the Promise of the Prairie while endowing the future Help us celebrate the Morris campus’s history by giving a scholarship gift to the students of tomorrow! Your gift will help to create a new, endowed University of Minnesota, Morris scholarship fund that will assist future students in achieving their educational goals. Gifts of $30 or more qualify donors for a copy of the campus’s 2010 Celebration DVD Promise of the Prairie: Education in Three Acts. Promise of the Prairie: Education in Three Acts, a new documentary created by University of Minnesota, Morris (UMM) Media Services, explores three very different educational institutions that have all made their home on the same plot of land— the Morris campus. The yearlong project culminates with its inaugural screening during Founders Weekend when the campus celebrates UMM’s 50th birthday and the 100th anniversary of the founding of the West Central School of Agriculture. All but $5 of your gift is tax-deductible within the fullest extent permitted by law. A charitable gift receipt will be issued by the University of Minnesota Foundation when your gift is received. With your help, we will achieve our goal of raising a minimum of $25,000 to endow the 2010 Promise of the Prairie Scholarship. Once $25,000 is raised, we will apply for the University of Minnesota President’s Scholarship Match Program. The program will match on a dollar-for-dollar basis the payout of the endowment. For more information about making a gift, please stop by the table outside of Oyate this evening or contact Janell Kolden, stewardship and gift administrator, at 320-589-6386 or koldenj@umn.edu.

The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer. Printed on recycled and recyclable paper with postconsumer material.
