The MarooNation Ball Springfield was held on Friday, June 2, 2017 at The Old Glass Place. The Presenting Sponsor for the evening was BKD Wealth Advisors. Guests enjoyed a three course meal, an open bar and danced all night long to the party band, Sequel Dose. Guests received one of a kind MarooNation Ball items to commemorate the night. Along with enjoying the captivating live entertainment, dining and dancing, and mingling with alumni, donors, and friends, guests also had the benefit of knowing that all sponsorship and ticket sale proceeds go towards scholarship support for Missouri State students in need.
MarooNation Springfield Student Scholarship
Emma Saake is this year’s recipient of the MarooNation Springfield Student Scholarship. This scholarship was established with the intention to help a student, attending the Springfield campus, who is facing an unplanned life altering situation or unexpected hardship at no fault of their own, pursue their college education with a lessened financial hardship. Proceeds from the MarooNation Ball Springfield go toward the scholarship.
“It feels really great to be recognized for what I’ve done, when I never really thought that I would be here,” said Emma.
Please consider making a gift to the MarooNation Springfield Student Scholarship.
