New This Year: Power Hour Challenges
Each year Giving Day has featured matching gift challenges, and this year, we’ve added power hour challenges sponsored by Marilyn Krause Leccese (‘74), and her husband, Rick Leccese. Marilyn and Rick have been active champions of Stout Gives Back Day since its inception in 2019 contributing to departments or programs that are close to their hearts. This year, they couldn’t choose just one and are generously supporting four areas across campus.
“We chose these funds because they spoke to us as opportunities to make a difference,” said Marilyn.
With Rick’s background in food service, he has “always been focused on and supportive of being well trained and ready to enter the industry,” and they have witnessed the ways that Stout’s Learning Environments are critical to that preparation.
