Tuesday, October 25, 2016, Dennis Jaspersen (Thrivent Financial) chairman of the MLC Golf Classic Committee, presented MLC student representative Monica Pappenfuss with a check for $38,345. Since its beginning in 1993, the Golf Classic has donated over $750,000 to the college for campus improvements and student assistance. This year’s contributions will be used for student scholarships – many awarded to the students present for this event. In addition to providing scholarships, the Golf Classic proceeds will fund the construction of a Summit Avenue overlook that will benefit all visitors to the MLC campus. Accompanying Dennis Jaspersen in presenting this check, (front row from right) were Gary Schwichtenberg (Pioneer College Caterers) and Jenny Eckstein (New Ulm Chamber of Commerce).
